there once was a poetry thread
that seemed to go almost all dead
we could all just survive it
but i'd like to revive it
so, tell me, what's up in your head

sun reflects off clouds from behind a white mountain
draping ribbons of scarlet across the spring sky
like memories in my heart sad and serene
that fade painfully into lost days and dreams
while in the east a pregnant moon stabs a hole
in a cumulous pillow that once threatened rain
but now surrenders to wisp and wind and night
so full and alive even the birds silent themselves
in awe

if you could edit your past
would you
i'm not sure i would
i mean
i've done some boneheaded things
but haven't we all
and is not failure
the first step to success
and truly
if i hadn't become an addict
i wouldn't be who i am today
and i'm alright
i'm more than alright
i could teach you a thing or two
or i can just sit back
and watch you
teach yourself
because if i can do it
so can you
once i tried to pick myself up
by my bootstraps
but i just fell on my ass
that's why we have asses
that and without them
we would be so full of ****

"My past has made me what I am today--"
Yeah, yeah, that's what they say.
I guess it's true, but if I may speak,
I'd take a redo any day of the week.
But only if I could know then what I now know
Because otherwise it'd be the same old ****show.

Elephant in the room
Flashes of gloom and doom

I say how is your mood
And he says it is all good

There's a smile in his voice
I choose to make the choice

To believe in his words
But circling vulture birds

Wrestle here in my mind
Mom do not be unkind

Leave it. The negative
He'll find a way to live

there is rain in my heart
and it won't move on through
there is rain in my heart
and I'm feeling so blue

ain't no lightning or thunder
no clear skies on the way
there is rain in my heart
it's been raining all day

Two years for me today
So I thought I'd stop by to say
Thanks to all my limerick friends
For being here along the way

It's amazing to look back
Drinking, I didn't know what my life lacked
I was stuck in a deep, dark place
With only a fake smile to grace my face

I couldn't figure out what was wrong
Or why I'd felt bad for so long
Where did I make the wrong turn?
Why did the daylight seem to burn?

It wasn't until I quit
That I began to understand a little bit
The drink and drugs weren't the cure
They weren't my friends but my abusers

So many things I didn't think were linked
To the drugs and the drink
$hit in my life piled in mounds
Suddenly started to turn around

Now with my life today
It's hard to believe there's a way
That the person I was at my low
Is the person that I am now

(I know, that last part doesn't rhyme at all, but it looks like it should!)

I sit here alone with my pets
It's really as good as it gets
Ralph is happy & gay
But only for today
Tomorrow he's off to the vets

Alas he's becoming a man
Bollocks afraid I'm no fan
As they jingle and sway
For most of the day
He's not aware of my plan




They haven't improved haha !

Hmmm.... I didn't think my first one was good at all. I was still experiencing so much brain fog at that point.

two whole years is quite a feat
it seems that dg has me beat
but this ain't no competition
i'm just avoiding repetition
one day beats being dead meat

Life has no meaning
Writers write and singers sing
I fill in a gap

I, myself, just live
Live-ers live and don't complain
I never learned that

I screamed and I cried
Laughed long and hard. Suffered angst
So easily hurt

Now I work so hard
Am learning to let it go
Where does this take me?

Here and there. Dark. Light.
Mostly gray. Mostly even
I go with the tide

It's interesting
To see what tomorrow brings
Flotsam or jetsam
