Darkness and Light

entry picture

My Mother, Sister, Brother and I

check into a hotel room. When we

enter the room my Dad who had

passed away almost five years

ago is sitting on the bed. He has

a wide smile on his face.

 

We ask, "Daddy why are you here?"

He says, "I wanted to see my family."

We are overcome with emotion and hug

him. We are all talking at once. Dad

interrupts us, "OK, ok let me say...

I Think About You

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think about

you every day.

 

I may not

write or

I may not

say, "Hey"!

 

But I think

about you

every day.

My Dad

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a child

I thought

the sun rose

and sat because

of my Dad.

 

As a teenager

I thought my

Dad was one

of the bumbest

people on earth.

 

Now that I

am over the

age of Fifty

I think the

older I get

the smarter

my Dad was.

 

The Circle

of life.

Do All Dogs go to Heaven?

Do all Dogs

go to Heaven?

I sure hope

It's true.

Cause when I

get to Heaven

I want to be

there with you.

 

You are gone

now but

for a

short while.

When I see

you again

I'll have a

big smile.

 

I'll sit upon

the ground

while you run

that crazy little circle.

Our Peanut Puppy

Silly little Puppy,

silly little Dog.

She's hyperactive,

she's an attention hog.

 

I love her

to pieces,

with her I

love to play.

But sometimes I

wish she'd just

go away.

 

For just a

few minutes,

to give me

 a rest.

 

Cause sometimes

my  patience,

she does test.

A Slightly Dirty Limerick

This traveler was out of luck

The other car oh it was struck

She said it was my fault

Her I wanted to assault

But my thought YOU YOURSELF CAN GO FU**

Poetry comes from the heart and soul.

Whether it be serious or comic,

a short poem can speak volumes.

How am I going to Explain This?

entry picture

I killed a man. It was self defense. But God forgive me I killed him.

I told him, "Don't mess with me. You'll regret it." But he didn't listen. The next second he was writhing in pain. I could tell his knees wanted to buckle, but they held firm.

When I released him I said, "Walk out that door and don't mess with anyone ever." He turned as if to leave but lunged at me.  The knife in his hand ...

My Imagination? 99 word horror story

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

The shadows flick across the darkened room.

I imagine these are demons in their evil dance,

although I know it is only the passing cars.

 

I hear strange noises coming from the attic.

I imagine this to be a serial killer stomping around,

although I know it is the mouse I chased

away a few days ago.

 

I hear an anguished moan.

I imagine it to b...

Wild Wolves

Wild Wolves,

I heard you howl

at the moon.

I believe it was

sometimes in June.

 

Wild Wolves,

You sounded lonely

You sounded sad.

Was I scared?

No I was mad.

Why?

 

Wild Wolves,

You are being

hunted, exterminated.

 

Wild Wolves,

why are you

so very hated?

The Mirror

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first apartment

was in a bad neighborhood.

The apartment was small

and rat infested.

 

The mirror in my

bedroom had a

dark shadowy spot

in the corner.

 

It looked creepy but

I told myself to ignore it.

But sometimes I swear

the shadow pulsated

like it was breathing.

 

When my lease r...
