Forever

Forever with you

Is how I thought it’d be

I love you always

Is how I thought it’d be

~

A pot of gold

At the end of the rainbow

A rainbow,

At the end of a storm

Is how I thought it’d be

~

We said our vows

‘Til death do us part

Death as in you and me

Not our love for each other

~

I thought it’d be

wonderful

a dream come true

~

I thought it’d be

magical

a fairy tale come true

~

I thought it’d be

forever

you and me

Going through the throes of divorce

UN-US

Have you ever thought of us?

Us being you and me together,

Not, you and me alone.

~

Us as a couple,

Us joined hand-in-hand,

Us side-by-side,

Us as one.

~

I think of us as two.

Not, two together,

But two separate.

Two going their own ways.

Opposite ways. Alone.

~

As us –

we were joined together by marriage

Not by love, not by friendship.

~

Us – You and me severed,

Not connected

Not by any means or ways.

~

You live. I live. Us is dying.

Us is dead.

We are dead.

We are UN-US.

LSD

Lysergic acid diethylamide

And

Life sucking drug

~

The drug that masks reality

For all its victims

Making them blind

~

NO!

~

Pain and suffering

Instability

DEATH

~

LSD is not your friend, but your

Enemy

Thrives from your pain and your

Misery

~

Impairing your judgement

Increasing your blood pressure

Hearing colors

Seeing sounds

~

Crossing over to a world all your own

PARANOIA

~

Lost in this world you call your own,

MISCONCEPTION, DENIAL

~

Drug free?

LIAR!

~

Love and support from family & friends

Who needs them, when you have

LSD?

~

Life sucking drug

DEATH

~~~

To the family member this was dedicated to; he did get off this drug before it was too late. I did lose a friend to this drug though… he was riding his motorcycle, flying high, crashed and died. Rest in peace my sweet Alex.

Vegas

Ruby red lips

Sun spun hair

Green eyes

Go

~

Lights aglow

Flashing of purple,

Magenta and gold

~

Slip into

Black velvet

Sequined gown

~

Loose change

Folded bills

Plastic

~

Heels of coal

Mind on fire

Hunger

~

Another chip added

Cards flipping

Dice rolling

~

Heart pounding

Lost in a shuffle

Dazed and blinded

~

Eyes; olive drab

Hair of wheat

Rosy lips, pale

~

Stop

Merry Christmas

I hope all of you have a safe and wonderful Christmas! I hope Santa Claus 🎅🏼 brings you everything you desire and I hope Jesus brings you everything you need.

I hope and pray the homeless get houses, something more than just shelter from the cold. To be in a house with a kitchen to cook food, a bathroom with running water to take hot showers, and a bed to sleep in is what many take for granted. I, too, took this for granted. But now, after being homeless for almost two years… not any more. Just last night, as I was walking my dogs to my 4runner, I saw a person sitting up against the outside of a church wall. It was freezing outside, and I said a little prayer that Lord keep this person and all of the homeless who don’t have any shelter from the cold, please keep them warm.

I hope and pray the children that don’t have any toys 🧸 are given a surprise tomorrow morning… that they will be able to open a present and receive a gift of joy.

I hope for those who don’t have anything to eat are offered food, or a prepared meal. Or for those who are isolated will be able to have a friendly visit.

Christmas is about giving not receiving. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, our Savior, not about the beautiful lights on houses. Christmas is about sharing with family and friends, about charity, about faith, and love.

May God bless each and every one of you!
