Rainbow Tears

January 5, 2012 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Animals/Pets, Grief

  Blazing orange, vibrant red, Golden yellow, Wyatt is dead! Gentle gray, charcoal brown, His blackened ashes Mark the ground! Frothy white and midnight blue. King Neptune, I give my dog to you! Peaceful green, A mournful sigh, Rainbow colors drop from my eye! ~ July 23, 1997 ~ We spread Wyatt’s ashes at his […]

Breathless

January 5, 2012 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Depression, Domestic Violence, Gloomy or Darker Poems, Grief

  I can’t breath The pain hurts so bad I can’t breath I’m painfully sad I can’t breath The worlds closing in I can’t breath I’m at my wit’s end I can’t breath My mind’s leaving me I can’t breath Let this breath set me free I can’t breath I don’t want to go on […]

Unwanted Goods

  Rejection from day one Son. It’s the way it is, the way it’s done. Don’t try to be more, try to break free This place of unwanted is your destiny. Not everyone is supposed to be born To be loved. Some are just here to get thru it For someone. Fucked as it is, […]

Traveling Broken

April 14, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Animals/Pets, Grief, Healing

Traveling Broken Broken is the heart of summer Desperate cries in mid-July Clouds of pain begin to hover As I search my restless sky.   Quietly groping through my memories Deep within my numb struck mind I rest upon that blessed December When Wyatt caught my husband’s eye.   I let myself begin to wander […]
