I Want A Refund

by picjumbo

No deposit and no returns

I can’t believe how life burns

Chews me up and spits me out

Of its intentions I have little doubt

It makes me suffer and wants my soul

Leaving me to feel like I have no control

Still I’m caught up in what is the game of life

And it is forever and ever going to cause me strife

But what is easy has so very few forms of worth

So as long as I am allowed to be here on earth

I am choosing to live each and every minute

Like I am existing in life’s game to win it

One foot in front of the other every day

It’s beautifully molding me like clay

My hopes and dreams I will revive

Repaying me so that I can thrive

Ethereal Castle

oh my ethereal castle 

these walls and this structure

they had been built up to hold me

but i have brought much devastation

in their wake i am left to find solace in pain

nothing left to keep me, it’s all utterly crumbled

and now i am left picking up the pieces of them both

piece by piece and brick by brick i must rebuild this fortress

for without it i fear the vultures will pick at my wounds eternally 

yes truly i must find strength and have faith that we will survive it all©

The Space Between

young-couple-enjoying-romantic-sunset-from-car-trunk-picjumbo-com

The space between, What is unseen

Love holds me, Time molds me

Life keeps me, Path meets me

Forever and a day, We stay

Not invisible to me, See

You and me, Equal we

Between and seen

Love holds us

Molds us

Keeps us

Meets us

Luster Lost

6942bf71f714cd2250e59125b1287a74

I feel like I’ve lost my luster

Some days no strength to muster

Why does life get so hard?

It is just leaving me so marred

Emotions can be my bane

Often leaving me going in sane

But then I believe in feeling

Even with outcome unappealing

I won’t give up dreaming

That one day again I’ll be beaming

Forever And A Day

37747084-love-hd-wallpapers

How long will I believe in you?
Until the seas stop their flowing
Until moon in the sky turns to grey
I will believe in you forever and a day

How long will I desire you?
Until the world stops turning
Until the trees no longer sway
I will desire you forever and a day

How long will I love you?
Until the sun does not shine
Until birds no longer fly away
I will love you forever and a day

When all is lost to me and I cannot find my way
I will look for you until it’s been forever and a day

Journey By Sea

Safe Harbor© (Lake Champlain) by Mac

Come along to the edge of this great sea
On a ship, sail a boat, float away with me

Life is rough, waves are tough, but we’ll be
Safe on board, safe enough, to be care free

Don’t rock the boat, stay afloat, is my plea
Waters lap, white waves cap, we must flee

Journey’s end, sails we mend, land we see
Harbor lights, darkest nights, followed we

Made it through, me and you, land and sea
Path we took, didn’t look, kept eyes on thee

Now’s the end, so we will spend, all eternity
Take my hand, we’re to land, it’s you and me

Warning Labels

warning-label

Recently I have come to the conclusion that everyone should be required to where a warning label. You know like “Contents may contain a hot mess” or “Requires frequent coddling”! Man, people are just so complicated. It would really make life a hell of a lot easier if we knew what to expect! Don’t you think?

I’m certainly not exempt! I think my labels of late would read something like, “Makes frequent stops to mope!” In fact, I believe that it would probably be easier for those who first met me to know what they should beware of from the get-go. So, I’ve created a list of warning labels for myself. For the good of you all, of course!

Approach with caution, no, seriously”

May contain nuts, actually she’s crazy

Requires adult supervision, I’m needy”

“Baby on board- Oh, you thought I meant a kid”

“May contain…no likely contains, alcohol”

You break it, you buy it”

“This product has been tested on men”

“Take in small doses with plenty of patience”

“Watch out for falling sarcasm”

“When taken with alcohol you may die laughing”

“Please do not feed the hormones”

“Object may appear to be fine when not”

“Not permitted to have serious conversations after 9PM”

“Poisonous: Keep out of reach of idiots, I speak my mind”

“Caution: Addicting”
