The Loneliness Of The Lonely

What is it like to feel lonely?
To be lonely?
To feel lost… alone… unwanted?
You may think you know
But you don’t

How can you be surrounded by people
Yet nobody sees you
Talks to you… smiles at you…

How can anyone live like this?
Why even go on living this way?

I’ve found so many lonely souls here
Searching for answers
Wanting someone to talk to
Someone to listen to their pain
Someone to help

I’ve tried to help
But I can’t do it alone

Will you be their answer?
Their saving grace?
Will you step up and help them?
Lead them out of their loneliness?

Or will you turn your back
And walk away?

It’s so easy to help
Just listen to them
Talk with them
Be a friend

Be the difference in their life
Just be there

Make it happen
Do it now!

Be Free

Set yourself free
Leap with the dolphins
Fly with the eagles
Soar with the doves
Run with the horses

Find the love inside you
Embrace it
Let it set you free

Feel the presence of love
Spread your wings
And fly

It’s never too late

You can still be free

The Old Broken Bridge

It’s just an old broken bridge
Crossing a snowy creek

What traffic has it seen?
How many souls have crossed its span?
Where did it lead?
How did it break?

A walk through the country
Brought me to here
To see the beauty of age
Just waiting to be shared

This snow covered bridge
Has a beauty so rare
That even though damaged
You won’t even care

Just follow my tracks
To the bridge to nowhere

A Month Of February Prompts In One Day

Thanks once again to Michelle from Putting My Feet In The Dirt
for the inspiration I get when I read her list of
daily prompts for the month of February.
Please visit her site for the list of daily prompts.

Let me tell you a story, actually a
Phantasmagorical story that I wrote
in Niches and Nooks with my usual
Blushing Authenticity.

It’s a tale of Intimate Endeavors that are
Silly n Sexy, but that also have
Moonstruck Repercussions and
Inexpressable Notions. It is also filled
with a Red Crush of Erotic Sentiments.
It’s Bloodthirsty and Blazing, filled
with a Ravishing Peril.

If you expect this to be Sumptuous and Sweet
with Desperate Obligations, you will
be disappointed. My words are written
with an Intense Attraction and are
Dedicated to Denial.

I grew up in Hippie Harbor, living through
many Precarious Quandries filled with
Corner Gridlock and Steadfast Turmoil.
Cupid’s Conspiracy made me
Immortally Cantankerous.

I could no longer control my Amorous Affections
and Mounting Proportions of Lavender Love.
I was no longer Dignified and Divergent.
My Giddy Ganders took control and my writing
became a Reckless Frenzy of meaningless words.

It was my Volatile Voracity that turned me
to the Dark Side.

Stay tuned…

My Writing Is More Than Words

As writers, we all use words as building blocks
Put together in sentences

My writing is more than just words
The words come from my heart
The writing comes from love
So much more than just words

When I hear the sounds of the night
The wind through the trees
The laughter of my grandsons
I start putting them to words

Words that describe how they make me feel
About love and life
Good times and bad
I write what I feel

Anyone can put words on paper
But can anyone create images with those words?
Memories in your own mind?

I write from almost 74 years of life
Ups and downs
Around and around
My words are my life

When you sit down to write
Let your mind fly free
Let the memories caress you
Like mine have with me

So open your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
They are more than mere words
If you just take the time

Whether your thoughts or mine
We’re all much the same
So write down your words
And your memory will remain

Soulana, Sister Land To Everdream

It’s a magical place that I visit
As I sit alone in the dark
A place of mystery and night songs
Where I go to quiet my heart

It’s doesn’t matter if I write
For that’s not why I’ve come
Soulana is my quiet place
To visit when day is done

But the music of Soulana fills my soul
And poems start to form
My heart tells me what to write
As words escape my pen

The words start flowing faster now
Words of love and words of life
Inspiration comes in wave after wave
Tsunamis of words that I need to write

Find your Soulana and go there tonight
The words will come and you’ll start to write
Feel the magic of Soulana flow through your pen
It will make you believe in your writing again

A Writer’s Confession

Have you ever wondered why you write?
Is it for me or is it for you?
Am I writing for the right reasons?
And what are the “right reasons”?

Do I write to get likes?
Comments? Followers?
Or do I write because the words inside me
Simply need to be put on paper?

I write to fill a need in myself and a need in you
A need to release feelings trapped inside
A need for self expression
A need to create a written record of my life

I write to express love, beauty, the wonders of life
I follow no rules, I just write what I feel
I write to create images in your mind
To make you feel what you read

I am a creator
Therefore I write
