You are Absent from my life

I feel intense Pain from being

Alone for the first time in my life

But I do not Regret my decision

These Tears are not for you

Like a kid’s

Snap together

Model kit

We fit together

Times were magical

Life was loved…


Eventually connections

Broke apart

Pieces lay scattered

Unwanted anymore

Sweep it up

Toss out yesterday

I’d rather think

Dreams of tomorrow

Between Wrong and Right

What happened to our friendship?

When did we become separated?

We used to be there for each other

And always up for chance to get together.

It has been a year since I heard from you.

I sent an email asking how you were

But I never got a response.

I have reread that email time and again,

Thinking I may have said or done something


If only you would give me a chance,

A moment to sit down and talk,

We could reconcile this friendship.

It has lasted about 18 years,

Through both tears and laughter.

I hate to see it blown away

Like a pile of leaves on a fall day.

I care about you.

You care about me

Don’t Bite The Hand That Feeds You

You were down on your luck

I helped you up

I gave you food

Money and

A phone

In many ways I supported you

So I was taken by surprise

When you seemed to block me

From being a part of your life

You grew quiet

And distant

And always had an excuse

Finally I just felt like screaming

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you

You just might damage it forever
