365 Days of Poetry: Day Three-Hundred and Forty-One

the pain is not sweet.
it festers and.
winter is coming.
too many mistakes.
no waking from the nightmare.
try to continue but.
all feels lost and.
decay sets in.
no longer myself.
can’t move forward.
can’t go back.

365 Days of Poetry: Day Three-Hundred and Seventeen

so many mistakes.
can’t go forward.
can’t go back.

lost now.
the sun does not sustain.
empty and shell-like.

crawl through another day.
wanted to be alone.
but what is the point?

another family split.
another dream broken.
recovery is unmanageable.

365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Seventy-One

threw my heart away.
was a stupid thing to do.
let anger overwhelm me.
and forgot about the truth.

threw my soul away.
it happened long ago.
so hard to remember pleasure.
when the pain starts to flow.

threw my heart away.
and now it’s done, no more.
smiles and love swept lingerings.
a closed up shop, a battered door.
