ABANDONED ROOM

I wrote this over 2 years ago. Life does continue on. Don’t stay in that old room with old memories for too long. Lot’s of new memories to be made! Coffins line eroded walls Like blackened bloody bricks And webs that spiders spun Have long ago lost their stick She is aware she is breathing…

THREE CONNECTIONS

I would like to thank my Relationships Are Hard guest today Robert Wertzler.

WHAT DOESN’T KILL US…

Today you will find me over at Johnny Ojanpera’s place where I apologize to an old friend.  I have tried a few times to gather the nerve to apologize but the thought of speaking my heart locks me up every time. I have the fear that, at this point, my apology will look like some…

RAINDROP TEARS

Written by Richard Ankers and HastyWords To lose yourself In a puddle of rain Image collected Rippling in pain   To find yourself Sitting in rust Lips betrayed By hollow trust   To see yourself A ghost in the glass Fade and return But not too fast   To hear yourself In a howling wind…
