ice storm

passing thoughts…

tiny little digs

prick…and bleed

do not say you
love me

do not say
I am beautiful

do not speak
or rather..write
to me
at all

it is a given
people like you
the elite few

are better at searching
and needing …more

so please I ask
while you are
so into yourself

do not feel
you are a shadow
towering over me

for you are spread
so thin
I see through you
and feel
the sun
within myself

do not think
you are the only one
who shines
who flies
who cries

who knows gloom
and delves into dark

there are precious few
like you
its true

like me too

in fact
I recently noticed

your eyes are closed
or perhaps..blinded
by your own light

do you not see me

I am of this world
so filled with treasure
you should know
you should know

do not lose sight of me
lest you lose…
part of yourself

    What are you doing rummaging around in my head? Talk about supernatural! And no, I never noticed the word end was in friend. Not even sure what to make of that now that you’ve pointed it out. This is a wonderful expression of some of the tragedies that exist in this temporal, disposable existence . xox

  • hey Jen, thank you for the comment which has left me with goosebumps that will not go away. first of all, have not been actively commenting, so apologies for any work I’ve missed. just not able to spend time here…not to mention other reasons, like life and it’s incredibly annoying and never ending unpleasant surprises, but never mind that. yes…this is something that is as endless as it is perplexing. I do give up, but sometimes need to write it out and post it to validate my feelings. I know you understand…more than most. the word ‘end’ magnified itself to me (talk about supernatural) as I wrote this, and freaked me out real bad. it was and is way too weird for me to even comprehend. anyway…again, many thanks…and feeling that connection strongly. love and hugs sister, shar XOXOXOXXOOXOXOXOXO

    I missed this one!! Awesome write as always. The first part of that word is fri. At the end of fri is the time to eat. Hopefully it was cooked well.

  • And how much of your work have I missed? No, you have missed nothing my friend. And as much as I love seeing you and hearing from you, you should not be commenting when I am so inactively commenting myself! (Meaning not at all really.) You did make me hungry though…and you did make me smile : )) Thank you so much you sweetie pie! Lots of love and warmest hugs your way, shar XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
