I've never wished to act on those cruel notions
That cross my mind at times, but I've felt anger,
'Cos I've been hurt and suffered vile emotions.
At these times, wrong decisions lead to danger.
I have responsibilities. I can't ignore them,
Unless some n…Posted 3 years ago
Relationship Sonnet Pair, December 15, 2019 (1/2)
I feel a change is coming in my story;
My heart's blown cold, then hot, from north to west
If I am brave and honest, maybe--glory
Will manifest itself. I'll do my best,
Retaining bound'ries while regaining sympathy,
For my antagonist's grave burdens' w…Posted 3 years ago
stress and soreness
I'll get to the point yea, right away
I'm having trouble handling my life today
I've been ridiculed, mocked, and I've been clocked
And I have no defense, my senses locked
I've been disrespected, my pride is all infected
The world in online life reflected

unravel me without delay
with batting thread and macrame
my mental health's unmade today
and rapidly I start to fray
the stomach acids eat at me
my eyes lose focus and can’t see
my skin is sloughing off so free
cascades of wellness one two three

Mind Purge 3
But I've no strength, no courage! If I must
Continue living, tread the steeper way,
Climb crises--impulse might o'erride dread; just
An instant could decide things either way.

A Friend Date
I'm going to meet my friend tonight
When we hold hands, my heart's so light
I'll kiss his face and hug him tight--
My pulses race just thinking of our date.
For months uncounted, it has been
My dearest wish, though still unseen,
To bravely ask, with…Posted 6 years ago
I hope that I can find a proper manner
To make new friends and treat them as they’d choose,
So they feel safe and cheerful ‘neath my banner
And not be overwhelmed, creeped out, bemused.
I know there’s something wrong, but no one tells
Just where I erred…Posted 6 years ago
Beat a Retreat
You know that words can hurt
Even more than a stick or a stone.
A pen destroys more than a sword
A doctor’s care I can’t afford
But there’s safety in staying alert;
Still more, in life alone.
I see where I went wrong;
I’m uncertain what I should have don…Posted 7 years ago
Fight to the Finish
My life is an arena where a struggle for control
Is always raging, night and day. O, who shall win my soul?
At times, my heart will seize the helm, and love with all its might
But then my mind will land a punch and try to do what’s right.
And alternatin…Posted 7 years ago
Emotions and Anaesthetics
Emotions rage & flare inside my mind
I panic, scream, & quiver oftentimes,
But these explosive feelings feel confined
Behind a barricade that muffles, mutes, & binds.
I know I'm having feelings, but their sound
Is stifled, distant; my heart seems quit…Posted 7 years ago
Too anxious to fix it
I'm lonely, I'm lonely
I'm drifting away
If only, if only
Friends weren't far away.
I've wandered much longer
Than I thought I would
Forever I ponder
If my choice was good
I want so to reach out
And touch someone's hand
Before thoughts can leach out
