And please, my Lord, I beg Thee, heal
The pain in one and all,
Which I in my confusion caused.
Please hear this sinner's call.
I did not mean to harm a soul,
But to my endless rue,
So much frustration, anger, hurt
I managed, still, to do
O I was wrong s…Posted 7 years ago
And one day, I will find the way,
The strength to tell my spouse,
And hope to Heaven I won't lose
My love, my kids, my house,
My inner peace; that I'll retain
My home, and if I may,
I'll ask for their consent to love
In my own natural way.
So yes, this …Posted 7 years ago
I have so much, so very much
My frame can't hold it all
I'll burst if I attempt to keep
Its mass behind a wall.
I feel so guilty! I have failed
To keep the borders free
Of raging feelings, now and then--
But then, they lied to me.
They kept me from the…Posted 7 years ago
No more can I control the way
I love, the quality
Of my affection, nor the strength--
Heart listens not to me.
It's true to some extent that I
Can choose how to respond
When feelings grow, until they reach
To limits, and beyond
The lines that I consider…Posted 7 years ago
But no, my heart just wouldn't die,
It loved, though I ignored
Its every message, every urge
Shut down across the board.
In spite of my refusal
To allow my heart to thrive,
Love was undaunted. Finally,
I heard: "I am alive!"
And is it wrong to feel, I a…Posted 7 years ago
The progress bar moves slowly still
Do not unplug your unit,
I rub my temples wearily
I know I can't assume it
Will really work. I doubt the flaw
Was ever in the OS.
My heart has always burst with love
Though I was e'er the slowest
At finding anyone to …Posted 7 years ago
That's all the standard user needs--
The office suite for home,
With other users disallowed,
Not recognized--they use their own,
And I'll use mine. That's how it's done
No jail-breaking here!
No one would dare suggest a change
The cor'p'rate rules are cl…Posted 7 years ago
Hi. After storm and stress, I find
I can't do much right now
But wag my cursor back and forth
And watch the progress bar.
The screen's still in a foreign tongue:
I have to guess its meaning,
But hopefully my mind will work
After repair and cleaning.

And now, like a spirit, your voice rings once more
How confusing to put them together:
Your voice, and your words, I could never expect
You would speak this way to me. Can we reconnect?
With the return of hot, muggy weather
Comes a new conversation. …Posted 8 years ago
You were so sure I'd wronged you, you'd made me believe
It was surely my fault; but then, how?
All the pages grew soggy and limp with the turning;
There were so many leads, but they all left me burning,
But the smoke didn't spell out an answer; well, n…Posted 8 years ago
I never understood what I'd done that was wrong,
Why you exiled me thus from my life.
Was it something I did? Was it something I said?
I strapped me to a table, I taped still my head
Underneath the hot lights. I was cut with a knife
But my brain wouldn…Posted 8 years ago
