Fluidity of Friendship

Life moves so fast
People go different directions

Suddenly the present is the past
Memories once vivid
Become blurry and faded Continue reading



Shadows lurk in sunlit corners

Demons dance along the borders Continue reading



My bones are weary
I wonder if they will crumble
My blood is racing
I fear I may stumble
My chosen path is steep
I have to keep climbing

The end is in sight
But my hope is dwindling
I know I should fight
But my light is diminishing
Anxiety is blurring my sight
But I can’t let it be crippling

Keep breathing
Hold on
Believe in the light
Clear my eyes
Focus my sight
Defeat is not my destiny



My world is in ashes at my feet
In a single heartbeat
Wraps firmly around my neck
Nothing is as it seems
This life, a crumpled up dream
I fight to see the light
But darkness has consumed me
Your love, it reaches out to me
Our hands, they struggle to meet
I want our world back
This disease has ripped us apart
I will never be carefree
Depression has trapped me
Aware of only misery
This is my reality
Struggling to breathe
Always reaching
Looking for a way
Back to you and me

Uncontrolled chaos

Pain of past, present, future

Anxiety, frustration, misunderstanding

Body tense and eyes red

Will this agony ever end?

Sitting on the front porchMove-On

Breathing in this hot, heavy air

Lizards lurking around

Beside me, an old wicker rocking chair

A butterfly flitting about

Dried leaves scattered everywhere

Don’t want to start the day Continue reading

New Normal

Hit me late morning

I was doing ok

Received unsettling news

Threw off my day

A nervous energy

On the edge of sanity

Holding on… barely Continue reading
