• karmachik commented on the post, puddle 7 years, 6 months ago

    she left my heart
    laying there
    a puddle of yuck
    and hurt and love
    and sorrow and joy
    and pain and beauty
    all jumbled up into a
    giant, messy, gross, disgusting
    puddle.
    how will i ever
    clean up this mess?

  • karmachik commented on the post, epic 7 years, 8 months ago

    this journey has been epic
    the paths we have traveled were
    interesting, difficult, fun, adventurous
    not always happy, we journeyed together
    i’d hoped for a love affair just as epic
    as our journey […]

  • karmachik commented on the post, wagon 7 years, 8 months ago

    I watched the little girl pull her wagon down the sidewalk
    the summer sun blushing her cheeks and dancing in her eyes.
    She stopped every few feet, bent over, and stared
    then perhaps would pick something […]

  • karmachik commented on the post, beehive 7 years, 8 months ago

    she laughed a joyous laugh
    her wrinkled skin
    decorated in brilliant colors
    the yellow-ish gold beehive
    spun carefully about her tiny head
    looked like a crown
    she was the queen of her universe
    how wonderfully
    life must have treated her
    i felt pride and envy
    simultaneously
    what a beautiful soul

  • karmachik commented on the post, fences 7 years, 8 months ago

    mending fences
    broken fences
    picket fences
    jumping fences
    pipe dreams
    all of them
    i’ll stick to the fences of
    barbed-wire
    i’ve constructed around
    my heart

  • karmachik commented on the post, below 7 years, 9 months ago

  • karmachik commented on the post, accordion 7 years, 9 months ago

    he played his accordion with passion pushing and pulling the large instrument easily as if he were guided by an other-worldly force to most he looked ridiculous cradling this monstrosity in his arms like a baby but the look on his face and the life that radiated in his eyes spoke of his need to […]

  • karmachik commented on the post, bench 7 years, 9 months ago

    i sat on a bench in the park this afternoon tired, lifeless, sad children were running about playing, laughing, living the sweet smell of autumn drifted through the air and i remembered as i watched them now that i too was once like them i too and laughed and played i smiled with these memories […]

  • karmachik commented on the post, crisp 7 years, 9 months ago

    the crisp winter winds
    chill me to the bone
    i used to detest this feeling
    wanting to run from it
    but now
    there is a sort of comfort in it
    i have accepted this chill
    the changing of the seasons
    after a lifetime of leaving
    i embrace this chill
    I am finally home

  • karmachik commented on the post, sparkling 7 years, 9 months ago

    the sun fell down around her
    she was sparkling like diamonds
    i couldn’t look away
    didn’t want to
    i needed to have her
    feel her
    touch her
    it was love
    it had to be
    the way her beauty
    captivated me

  • karmachik commented on the post, savage 7 years, 9 months ago

  • karmachik commented on the post, lilies 7 years, 9 months ago

    she picked the lillies
    stuck them in her hair
    and danced about
    in the golden sunshine
    the warm, fragrant air
    circled her
    intoxicated her
    as she reveled in this place
    in peace and love and freedom
    she knew that this
    was where her soul
    had been living

  • karmachik commented on the post, dozen 7 years, 9 months ago

    there are a dozen reasons why
    i shouldn’t fall in love with you
    but do you think my heart really cares?

    i love you
    and that’s the only reason that matters

  • karmachik commented on the post, apron 7 years, 9 months ago

    she wears her apron
    blue and white checked
    her uniform
    the symbol of her wife-ly duties
    she does what she has to do
    wishing sometimes
    to be rid of this piece of cloth
    and of the responsibilities
    it carries
    she wishes she were free

  • karmachik commented on the post, estate 7 years, 9 months ago

    she managed her estate, down to the last detail, leaving nothing to chance. she didn’t want them to worry about anything when the time came, not that they were even aware of the fact that the end was near. her end would be shock enough for them all.

  • karmachik commented on the post, bridge 7 years, 9 months ago

    i’d like to build a bridge
    between who i was
    and who i am now
    but some things
    are better left
    alone
    it’s all just water
    underneath

  • karmachik commented on the post, desert 7 years, 9 months ago

    my life feels like a desert
    lonely
    barren
    dusty
    brown

    is my oasis
