The Joys Of Aging 

Ligaments stretchAs joints ache  Strange cracking noises  Are greeted with groans Random roaming pains Everything requires more effort  More care You must warm up to get out of bed it seems  It's strange, as life gets a little easier  It becomes more difficult in new ways Ahh the joys of aging 

A Cold Feeling

A cold feeling As numbness attempts to invade the heart Perfect love feels distant As if fading to black Is this reality Or some twisted fantasy Are eyes open or closed Rapturous chaos Madness ensues White noise like a swirling hurricane Envelopes, overwhelms the senses And then stop . .

Almost suicide

Do you know what it is like To hold a knife to your stomach To want with every fiber of your being to push it through To see the blood & intestines run out To find out in that moment if anybody really cares Then to hate yourself even more because you couldn’t do it?... Continue Reading →
