don't let the dog bite!

Here you go,
once again,
under clear blue skies,
spilling lies,
destroying life’s,
the truth is part of you,
embedded in your core,
death,
walking on hearts ,
stomping on life’s,
we have all been there,
touched by you,
touched by your fear,
admiring your crinkled,
auburn hair,
cascading from the sky,
as the pain becomes pain no more,
we accept your lies,
fear subsides,
love transcends,
reaching out,
searching for the gentle touch,
for god is near,
friends so dear,
your purple pleated skirt,
trimmed with deceiving hearts,
lined with hurt,
acceptance is bliss,
your black pumps,
softly,
oh so gently,
caressing the earth,
causing earthquakes,
within ones head,
uprooting the dead,
memories knocking on my back door,
i let them in,
as i watch you strolling by,
once again,
you have entered my life,
with your Gucci bag,
full of lost dreams,
as we hang on to hope,
your Versace shades,
hiding daggers of pain,
shifting eyes,
pointing fingers,
no one to blame,
we accept you,
the kettle is on,
the dogs don’t bite,
the cat is fine,
no sympathy,
no shame,
reality accepted,
life is grand,
living to the fullest,
painting dreams,
within the mind,
everything is ok,
everything is fine,
every hour,every minute,every second,
so precious,
in ones life…………………..

don't let the dog bite!

Artist's Description

how do you write about chemo therapy….
…………………………………………………………
as i sit on skid row,
sipping a coffee,
i shut out the world,
for life seems grand,
when you see ppl smile,
when all they own,
is the clothes on their backs,
empty,
your mind,
your soul,
your heart,
and let the ink flow……………….
