A poem of an Abuser

I am a survivor of spousal abuse. Now married to my best friend of 23 years. Yet recent events have set in motion some memories. I believe those who have suffered abuse have   PTSD. I wrote the poem on my Website which I believe depicts the mindset of the abuser. If you do not feel comfortable leaving a comment please either leave a thumbs up or down. Thank you.

SAME AS IT EVER WAS!

Honor and Remembering

Honoring and Remembering

The true hero needs no citation

Giving of themselves without reservation

Defending the defenseless

Standing in the gap

Echoing within their soul

God Bless America

Gaining a foothold

Let Freedom Ring

First responders Heroes rush in

Let our Remembrance

Be of them

Their voices no longer heard

Their souls lifted up

Honor their Memory

For their life they gave up.

Memorial Day

Is not backyard Barbeques

It is Honor and Remembering the Heroes

Giving their lives

For our American Dream

Let that Dream Remain as we Pause

Lifting their Names

As the bell Tolls

So all will know the cost

Isn’t Free

Honoring and Remembering

Is the least we can do.

Honor our Veterans

Remembering

P.O.W

Ultimate sacrifice,

Never thinking twice,

To be missing their loved ones

Not knowing the truth

War is hell

No one should be left behind

Search for the soul

Within the earth

Bring them home

Giving them sweet peace

Prisoner of War

Shackled to red tape and lies

Let truth ring out

Bring them home again

Let the earth cry out

As our lips remember

Their sacrifice.

Awkward Blush

Awkward Blush

Trip and slip not really coordinated

Tongued tied

Blemishes abound

Love of parents always say

Everyone goes through this

I ignore the wisdom they share

Divert my eyes

Not showing my weakness

Until that day

The world seemed to go my way

Your hair is fair

limbs are long and lanky

The first words I hear

You ask directions

I notice the braces

You divert your eyes

I tell my first lie

Giving you bad directions

I notice you coming again my way

I smile and say

Here let me show you where”

From that day

We share this fray

With our kids

They don’t believe

When we tell them

Everyone goes through this

Brilliance

Sing Me a Tune

 

Sing me a tune

This June

Picnic baskets that satisfy

While dragonflies zip by

Tender melody

Telling of your love for me

Sing me a tune

Lyrics of love in bloom

Wispy gauze dresses

Exquisite Caresses

Intoxicate me

Rhythmically

Add a dance

To this romance

While fire flies

Light the night skies

Sing me a tune

This June

Before you become

My Groom

Continue this serenade

Till our dying day.

How she is

How she is (12 random words)

{Support, jog, observation, plastic, truthful, wail, puzzling, secret, surround, female, knife, end }

Female species are puzzling,

With observation one can see,

Most are truthful not plastic.

Victoria wails out her secret,

When she says jog on,

She simply needs time

Yet in the end

She wants support

Words are like a knife

which wounds her spirit.

Speak of love and passion

She will respond.

Know your woman

She is your life.

Let’s Rumble

Storm Rolls in

Fall sky.JPG

Storm Rolls in

In the distance I hear a static crack

Holding my breath

Wondering what it will bring

Thunder creates ozone

Which cleanses the earth

Shall this cleansing bring mirth?

Or will it whip up a frenzy

Tornadoes powerful signal

As I stand, calm has come.

Yet from out of nowhere

A shoe dropped

Sandcastles

Summertime Jumble

S is for sun

Summertime Jumble

Tag your it starts the skit

Hopscotch is fun to watch

Popsicles, ice cream cones

Garden gnomes, patio stones

Old time rock and roll

Light the charcoal good for the soul

Playing Jacks shiny clean Cadillacs

Hide and seek lets take a peak

Around the corner red rover come over

Blow up pools garden tools

Lawn Mowers, Leaf blowers

Sounds of Summertime jumble

Sidewalk chalk tells a story

Bright blue Morning glories

Blow up pools there are no rules

Bug spray at the end of the day.

Fire Flies light the skies

Ice Cream Truck kids run amok

Sounds of Summertime Jumble

Lovers walk softly talk

In the moonlight loves delight

Amore is the story

Tiki torches, sitting on porches

Making tents out of blankets

Boot scoot boogie being silly

Sounds of Summertime Jumble

Gardening Treasure

Enchanted

Delicate beginnings

Blossoms scent fills the air

sweetly lingering

Each creature prepares

New arrivals springing forth

Mother doe readying

Her fawn will soon arrive.

Birds nestled

In a crook of a tree

Waiting for hatching to begin

All the while life is bursting

Some creatures are waiting

Others dancing with life

Buzzing can be heard

as insects enjoy the nectar

Humans hustle and bustle

wanting to enjoy life’s pleasures

While creation creates

Each moment that passes

cannot be recreated

Inhale each moment

rejoicing in the dance of life.

Notice the swirl and twirl

of each creature

great and small hear their call

Peace be still

stop in your place

just for a moment

Hear the whisper of life

take it with you to lessen

your strife
