often misunderstood
the true meaning of Christmas
can’t be bought or sold
yet pets and their owners
proud of those ugly sweaters

A photo of my cat Boo in his ugly Xmas sweater will cheer anyone up.

Happy Holidays to all of my readers thank you for the likes and comments on my work this year it’s greatly appreciated. Big hug!

Love Right Now Is Too Tall An Order


Love Right Now Is Too Tall An Order

only seconds spent
giving myself yet again
too high to reach for
leaving a stain on my lips
a lump of coal as my heart

I combined both writes and chose 3 words this week, “Lump Of Coal.” I animated the prompt.

New World Order

New World Order

Why do I love the one’s who hurt me?
Not physically, but blows struck just the same
the pain I feel each day is still real
the names and blame suffice to maim.

I need to make myself a new life
it’s not as easy as it sounds
this world’s become a real hard place
and all our leaders are now clowns.

Stuck in a hell I helped to make here
used all the savings that I had
I’d like to think that I have some hope
I’m sad that everything just turns bad.

So what do I do now I’m asking?
A simple question with an answer not so clear
I need some peace and understanding
not sure I’ll find it while I’m here.
