This Day

This Day elegy

This day is hard
One that breaks my spirit
Year after year
Day after day

This day is sorrowful
The day I lost you
Your smile, your hugs, your words
The day my world darkened

This day is never easy
It creeps up on my mind
Crashes into my heart
Destroys my smile

This day over and over
Plays in my mind
Live, in color
Like it was yesterday

This day sucks
This day hurts
This day makes me cry
Tears quiet and loud

This day I think of you
Every day I think of you
But on this day, I mourn you
On this day I ache for you

So tonight when I lay
My head down to sleep
Please, on this day
During this night
Just this once

This day come to me
Comfort me and
Show you are near
So maybe it will be easier
On this day
Next year

I am so glad you are here. Please make yourself at home, here, next to the arm-chair. Let us talk of poetry and life; let us laugh and crack jokes; let us rule the world with our lofty thoughts and electrodes for those out of line.Most likely I will pee a little when we laugh, and my thoughts are usually random rather than lofty, but you know what they say: “The dog of the exceptional wisdom has the bird of sleeping monkeys in his dreams!”Anyway, I was talking to a guy the other day who was high on pot (he was standing on the toilet) and I mentioned my fear of bush hogs and roaches. He comforted me and then asked why I was in the stall with him.So there you go, my full life story nowhere on this page. I feel like we know each other so much better now. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I seriously funny, sometimes I’m seriously gassy. I am at all times grateful for your support.If you have an idea to share, or just want to drop a line, you can contact me at peanuttyoh@yahoo.comBe excellent to each other and glitter on glitterbombs.

Day Dreamer

Day Dreamer long poem

My imagination sets sails on lotus leaves and paper boats: for I never meant to travel far. But to picture The little Mermaid’s adventures along the foamy edge of ocean’s floor! My imagination builds nests high up in tall trees,

When my heart breaks I weep as I’ll weep for days, With weeks that’ll go by without any sleep I’ll stay wide awake, Where I’ll wait here in the same old tiring place, With nothing besides this woman on my

A New Day

A New Day short poem

Did you see the sun this morning As it slowly woke up the sleepy sky? Did you hear the birds sweet serenade As they quickly flutter by? Did you feel the cool kisses of the breeze On it’s was to
