offering

What is left to give?
I gave my time, my life, my value
I gave my heart, my tears, my joy
All for you, none for me

cursed

Everything went wrong today, staring with breaking my shoe laces. Then there was the flat tire.FML! The last straw was the train blocking my route to work. Nothing went right this morning. Except the fact that after all those delays I was 3 minutes behind the drunk who ran the red light and broad-sided another vehicle, killing the driver

confide

I rolled over in bed, turned my wife’s face towards me.
I whispered in her hear my desire.
To trust her, for her to trust me.
This was our time, our intimacy.
She knows my heart, my soul.

orphans

I see them in the street, dirty, worn out, clothes that should have been replaced a year ago. Their dirty faces peeking out behind the bombed out ruins, smoking, dusty, reeking.
Their parents killed, shot by the Germans during the pogram to cleanse the world of Jewish filth. They welcome the funny men with steel hats that speak in words they don’t understand. But these men have food, blankets and love.

struggle

It’s my daily grind to get up and get out of bed
To find something useful to do every day instead of work
It’s climbing that 13,000 foot peak
It’s my first half marathon
Watching my dad die from Lymphoma in a hospice unit

harm

There is potential danger here. To my physical or emotional being.
The hairs on my arm stand up, my skin pricks in anticipation.
I am sweating and there is an intense know in my stomach.

bourbon

Smoky and full of fire
I feel the smooth burn
Just a few rocks to keep it mellow
But I miss the peatiness of a scotch
Mellowed, golden, smooth

wheelchair

Mobility for the immobile
My aunt after her broken hip
Aid, not dependency

tracking

I follow you with my eyes
my gaze, intent, as you pass me on the sidewalk
I see where you;ve been, where you are headed
I’ve lost sight

trenches

where we played as kids
more like creeks that pooled stagnant water
war games and bike jumps
more trouble than we could count
moss and water, mud and muck

beforehand

It was what happened one hour prior to arriving at the party. The shit storm that manefested as inklings of clouds on the horizon. Just a few, dark clouds that didn’t quite portend the epic malestrom about to unfold

squad

Ender and his platoon, facing unfair challenges.
Lined up against formidable odds, outnumbered,
Reacting and performing in unison to achieve their victory

Becoming teammates, leaders, friends.
Winning and losing together, working towards their common goals.

sensible

Intelligent and rational
Logical
Not my job
Not my life
What I had for lunch

incubator

Building
Growing… a seed, or life sprouts
New life, in process.
Warmth, enfolding like a blanket.
sprowting forth ideas, thoughts… germinating.
Becoming alive…

cinematic

A temporal journey away from the mundane world. Engaging the audience in imagery of things imagined, real, or past. Making one see the world through the eye of the story teller and the lens. Challenging us to think outside the everyday experience.
