An Old Nemesis

An old nemesis

Fighting against me since youth

Comes again to call,

Trying to snuff my life out

As it’s always wanted to.

Thus far it has lost,

But I am a realist,

One day I will lose

And will have to pay the price…

Until then I choose to live!

I See The Beauty

I see the beauty

Surrounding in rainbow hues

Muted by the pain

50 Word Story – Cardboard Roof

The cardboard roof does little to keep the icy rain and bone-chilling cold from compounding his pain.  Looked upon as a piece of worthless trash, he is invisible to passersby..

Perhaps if they realized they were just one paycheck away from his Hell, they’d offer him a bit more sympathy.

I Gave You My Soul

I gave you my soul

Naked and vulnerable

What was I thinking?

All I wanted was your love

And you crushed me to pieces.

~

Love is what’s sacred

Yet you treat it like folly

And who’s is the victim,

Me…the one you claim to love

The object of your hatred.

~

Maybe I’m the fool

Gullible, the stupid one

Believing in love

Like Shakespeare’s starstruck lovers

And I’m Romeo

Muddled Thoughts And Sour Mood

Muddled thoughts and sour mood,

So unlike for me to brood.

.

What and why I do not know,

Whilst I wait for it to go.

.

Twist of fate or slight of hand,

Either one would sure be grand.

.

To cheer me up and make me smile

Releasing me from this cursed trial.

.

But alas today it seems to be

Another day without much glee.

.

Clouds of pitch and torrential rains

Dampen my spirit and fog my brain.

.

Sure I know this too shall pass

For gloom this dark cannot last.

.

Until then most sullen I’ll be,

Awaiting the key that sets me free.
