Mag 29


That is not my home

but that is my stuff sitting inside

This is not my life

but this is the body that houses my soul

I give it back to you

I did not ask for it

You provided it in spades.

It is big and from the outside it looks real nice

The inside needs a lot of work

Undisclosed work covered with a coat of Kilz

Shiny and fake with a premium price tag

Nobody needs to know.

what you can't fix


















Muscle memory disappear

Sooth away the fear

Trying to soak in bravery

Fighting back a tear

Moving forward

Diagnosis unknown

And then known

Do I have to face this alone?

No

Love felt it too

He put a gentle hand on my shoulder

And whispered in my ear,

“Eyes closed warm water

Soft Music great wine

More importantly I am here.”

Worry momentarily diminished

Transported to the sublime

All will self correct in time.

Remove

Remove a layer of skin


But leave my heart alone



Can’t you see my best efforts?

I am moving towards happiness

I choose not to take what you offer me

So remove your hurdle from my mind





I am blind to your advances

Yet each year my vision improves

Scratch out my eyes

Remove my soul from this brain, this body



Leave me and don’t ever try to pin liar on me again

Function

One major function just stopped working
it was rusty
the thread was stripped
it dripped, dripped, dripped
the ordor the mess
the problem needed to be solved

One just couldn't live with it
she took a lot of pills
A lot of alcohol
it was just less painful that way
she died


Two could live with it
A rubber hose was inserted
life was made easier
it was just less painful that way
she lived

Option one or Option two
problem solved

Divorce


Their tears


Puddle there

They’re the cause

Just because



The can is full

But it is moist and green

Rain has fallen



It is clean now

It is new and crisp

Sharp and defined

Fragrant and refined

Strong because of what they didn’t intend to share.
