  • Sonnet; Life updates (3/3)

    I hope, through all of this, that I have learned

    Some lessons to apply to later life,

    So I may save fond friends from future strife,

    And loathe myself a little less. I turned

    My eyes upon myself, at point of knife,

    From others' viewpoint: hard. It changed…

  • Sonnet; Life updates (2/3)

    My left leg's been through surgery--ah! Twice.

    I'm walking nearly normally by now,

    But that was taxing. Very. I'll allow,

    My limp's a minor thing, one grain of rice

    Within a heaping bowl.

  • Sonnet; Life updates (1/3)

    My life, in recent months, has been o'erfull.

    There's too much going on, inside my heart

    And head, to parse, to handle. As for art,

    I've had no spoons to work. I'm gath'ring wool,

    Bereft of words, o'ercome. I've been a fool

    Both in and out of love. How ca…

  • Evicted/Invited? (Part 2 of 2)

    But then I hear a tiny sound

    That stirs my mem’ry, brings me ‘round

    To former joys. I used to know.

    “Dear Anna? hi, I’ve missed you so!”

    And I once more do hear that voice

    I’ve loved so long, and I rejoice,

    I’d never thought to hear them more,

    Outside …

  • Friendship Anxiety

    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…

  • doomed

    the sound is doomed

    the air is doomed

    my lungs full up with spores that plumed

    the friends i loved

    the loves I friend

    depart for good my life doth end

    when they are gone

    I'm nothing left

    no confidence i'm done, bereft

    and in my absence

    pain remains

    I pain…

  • 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

    The…
