I’m just a simple man! I live in the country, not sure how to describe myself. I’ll try again….one day! For now I hope those that discover my poems enjoy them as much as I did composing them! Much love to all you beautiful creative minds!
I’ll never forget the day I found you, you looked to be abandoned, at 4 weeks old you were beaming with life but no family, I feel as if you chose me showing up in the middle of nowhere, I grabbed you up cleaned you off then you chewed up my daughter’s teddy bear! For 7 years you’ve been my life companion, and when tragedy struck I thought how could this of happened, a pack of vicious coyotes almost took your life,I found you frozen in blood clinging on to your last light, you were so torn apart, I wasn’t just losing my dog, but a piece of my heart, I fell to my knees and words escaped my breath, I quickly grabbed you up and rushed to the vet, I arrived in a hurry and nothing else mattered, I wasn’t losing my friend my world would be shattered, I was told nothing else to do might as well go home as you were in surgery for hours, it was hard to cope, I arrived the next morning expecting the worst, when I walked thru the door you heard my voice and you let out a burst! My friend was gonna be alright, such a relief I disbursed, you’ve been thru everything with me Aries these last seven years, and I hope for many more but without all the excitement and tears! I love you Aries these words you hear daily, just please stop eating my shoes it’s expensive, it’s ok, but not really.
As we find ourselves in the dark, we search and we search, just trying to find a light, it gets lonely and painful, ever exhausting seeking with no sight, then she comes along so far in the distance, her light is one to behold, I've never known of such an existence, with no eyes to see and only pain finds my path, makes me ponder about this instance, I've never know beauty like this light has shown, I'm gonna be right with myself so I become known, as she draws closer I no longer feel alone, I rise from this dark depth beginning to regain my sight, not knowing how much was lost in myself, as if I'm hiding from the light, tears stream down my face an outcry of emotions, as I emerge in this new life I'm hopeful the dark, will never be chosen.
As a travel afar, through fields and ridges, dessert heat even some red hedges, I come to the top to see the way, man that's far, but not too far away. So I dive and I jump I dip but not dapper, I run thru the heat I push and I push, notice out the corner of my eye, raptors coming thru the brush. I scream and I run I can't seem to find my home, I hear a lady say you can do it, so I grit down and strut some more, night has fallen now I'm almost at my shelter, I must take a break now till dawn, so I don't risk, I goto the water to quench my thirst..... I got ate by damned ole fish....
Life as a crustacean, must seem pretty hard, to be in a shell your whole life,only coming out to escape the dark, when they do emerge and finally see the sun, it’s a short lived beautiful moment, now its time to run, when in their shell their safe away from danger, then we come out, only to be met by a smiling stranger, been living your life upside down thinking you see smiles but in reality their only frowns, I go back in my shell for it’s the safest place to dwell, they say come on out and have fun, no thanks,I’m fine in my living hell.
