Times

I like the simple things.
The things like
Eating an apple with a knife
And jamming out to music
And the feeling of soapy warm water
On my hands when I wash dishes
And the sun coming through the window
And quiet walks on a starry night
And fresh chocolate chip cookies
And a clean house
And the smell of old books
And wearing my favorite shirt

There are times
When my heart sings
Because the sun
And because the moon
And because the stars
And the trees
And dirt
And light, and just
Life

But then there are the down times.
Those morbid
Menacing
Ugly
Angry
Sad
Upset
Unfair
Times
When nothing
Is good
And I can't
Seem
To
Breathe
Quite
Right.
In
Those
Times
There is only one thing I can do.

Remember the good times.

Thinking Back to Times of Guilt

The shakes came back, I knew they would.
Tell me, mother, tell me I'm good.
Sometimes I think my back might buckle
From this near-dead weight I have not left.

I take it with me from birth to death,
Just to see if I've gotten stronger,
Just to see if it's left.

The burden keeps me up at night.
It is the reason for this fight
Against myself or a younger me,
Someone else's soul, I hope.

Is this my necklace made of rope?
Or an illusion just to create
A justification, a way to cope.

Sin takes hold, I knew it would.
What was the word? Righteous? Good?
Maybe I should've paid more attention
To the speech, not the speaker.

Faith has left and made me weaker.
The only magical transform.
But I'm not magic, nor a messiah,
Just a sinner, sunken deeper.


guilt,  thinking,  times.

Comfort in times of need

We have stopped,
For coffee and to leave Tod
With friends.

The comfort of their arms
Open to our need is
Immeasurable.

We walk down to the lake
And the quiet beauty soothes

The waterdragons, with the
Scurrying, play brings a smile, as do the willy wagtails with their
Come-hither look-at-me
I'm better than, fred astaire, dance.

But beneath it all,
Lies the quicksand of sadness
Waiting to grasp at our feet again and again...

We must continue on,
Leaving our boy in good hands, we go...


comfort,  times.

Too many times

I have tried too many times
Reaching out my hand with no kind returns
Pulling back my hand to find
Just broken fingers, scars, and burns


times.

Times

There are times,
And yes,
We are in those times
I am with you
Let me hold you here now
Give your cold parts
To me, i'm keeping
Them warm don't worry


times.

Sign of the times

My mother cried all day
When I left for London
The day I went away

Her world went light to gray
Bidding farewell to her son
My mother cried all day

I had so much more to say
An unshot loaded gun
The day I went away

Why is it then youths stray
For fame, fortune or fun?
When our mothers cry all day

Ireland's youth is done with hay
It makes more sense to run
So we all run away

Limited opportunity leads to decay
Our prospects are nearly none
And the day we go away
Our mothers cry all day


sign,  times.

Our Times

It makes me sad to see
The blind masses
Who try to be
So worthy

They try too hard
For them to see
What a life
They can lead

We are here and now
There is no will
To which we must bow

We command our dreams
We are the ones who
Must tear the seams

An eternity from today
What will be left
Of what we are?


times.

Hard times

Honest to god

I've been cradling hard times

Uttered words that aren't alone

Sensation overtakes them like a milestone

It is a blinding ray

A fiery putrid stench

And I am left

Faintly chasing the migrating birds


hard,  times.
