~::~ Memories Torn ~::~

~::~ Memories Torn ~::~

Lee Plaza Hotel, Detroit, Bonnie Beechler

Memories forlorn

Of years long gone

A place called home

A place to call our own

 

Of crumpled sheets

Kitchen counter treats

Amorous eventide teas

Romance by the trees

 

Of first borns and words

Midnight wails and turds

Of projects & papers

Even best achievers

 

Today we lay chipping

Wallpapers, dirty & ripping

Dusty, grubby and slime

Like rotted wood with time

 

Memoirs vulnerable

Of yesteryears colorful

Dead with the seasons

Irreparable beyond reasons

~::~ On The Edge ~::~

~::~ On The Edge ~::~

Image

Teetering on the edge of sanity

O’er the cliff, I stand alone

Struggling to gather foothold

Shivering to the bone

 

Trying my best not to fall

Down the abyss of darkness

A promise to self, stares back at me

Of never going down, now truly messed.

 

Restraining droplets, that trickle down

Moistening my cheeks that swell

Reining my step’s o’er moss laden stone

That can plummet me down to hell

 

A mist swirls around me black

Confounding my vision obscure

Oh why dear Lord, you subject me to this

Poor heart of mine so pure!

 

I dunno if I shall fall head first

Or if someone’ll pull me back

Who’d hear my muted frantic calls

And bring me back on tracks

‘m still there, on the edge

As eons pass by in overflow

Waiting for my miracle

While gaping at abyss below

~::~ Cobwebs In My Mind ~::~

~::~ Cobwebs In My Mind ~::~

Image

There are cobwebs in my mind

That seems to just dwell behind

Fresh thoughts brim like fountains

Whilst cobwebs daunt like mountains

No matter how hard I try,

They endure, in frustration I cry

Oh! There are cobwebs in my mind!

A million cobwebs in my mind..

 

A spider unknown comes up crawling

Uneasiness and doom it brings

I struggle in vain, to push them away

And yet there comes one, leading me astray

I fight a fight unbeknownst to me

Scuffling with shackles to be free

Oh! There are cobwebs in my mind!

Daunting cobwebs in my mind..

 

The intricate web, a puzzle formidable

With every attempt my hope gets feeble

I trudge along, untangling the threads

With every section, anxiety spreads

Wonder if I can ever clean up this mess

Or will I go crazy, under extreme duress

Oh! There are cobwebs in my mind!

Gazillion cobwebs in my mind..

~::~ Here I Lay ~::~

~::~ Here I Lay ~::~

Image

Here I lay

Gaping at the stars

Wondering where they play 

In this vast expanse

Here I lay

Wondering what to do 

Should I play? 

Or work harder than I should

Here I lay 

In dungeons of fiery hell

Pondering in dismay 

Distraught, fighting my own quell

Here I lay 

In hope of a better tomorrow

Destiny led astray

Buried six feet in sorrow

Here I lay

 In shadows deep and dark

Rotting in decay

Searching for a sole faint spark

Here I lay

Incarcerated in an iron fence

In misery I flay

Questioning my very existence

~::~ WHY?? ~::~

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, why?

.

 

Keeping the hopes of flame burning?

Leaving my poor heart yearning..

Why do I look for every hint?

That can set my eyes at glint

Every minutiae that I can sift

To give my spirits a lift

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, why?

.

 

Moments of Togetherness regaling

Relics of optimism still unfailing

A flickering prospect looms at large

Insanity seems to have taken charge

Albeit ruthless truth lashes out

Callous destiny I can’t flout

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, Why?

~::~ Goodbye~::~


Cloudy Dark rainy night

Lonely Star twinkled bright

Caressing zephyr unfurls my mind

In retrospect thoughts unwind

Moments spent together

Talking nonsense, even weather

Sipping tea having fun

Laughing over our lil puns

Rain drenched, jumping puddles

Thunder & lightening made us huddle

Movies, music, senseless jabber

These memories make it even harder

To accept brutal truth’s throes

Harsh reality that life bestows

My feelings I could never convey

One murky night you passed away

Tears always brim my eyes

I never got to say goodbye

*Note –  This poem is dedicated to a dear friend and colleague who was my partner in crime all the time that I spent in Reliance -DAKC.. He suffered from throat cancer which he never realised and when they did diagnose it was too late to cure.. I never went to meet him at the hospital as I knew I couldnt stand him bedridden with all those tubes thru his body and I knew I would break down… Which he definitely wouldnt approve of… He was the closest buddy I have ever had.. I still feel guilty for not having met him.. and I hope he forgives me…  where ever he is 😥

You will always be missed buddy 😥 and no one I believe can ever take your place pal.. I miss you 😦
