aplogies beforehand...sigh...am attempting to glue them to paper to keep them from haunting me
...rough days these are...



who can argue against it?

tiptoeing the words
they find different ways
to hush an entrance
and then they Pounce

the finale is the same
it never changes

small and inconspicuous but surely
uninvited they sit daily in the seat
beside me

over a million miles it
has run through my head
it never changes

despite the radio
on or off
they only know one chorus
they sing loudly and...
it never changes

like a thief least expected
they steal in close and run off with
my voice succinctly followed by
tear drop after
tear drop

charge them with inhuman cruelty
I should but the Judge is Death
and the sentence never
changes who

can argue against it?

Chris is dead
Chris is dead, they said

Ah girl, I wish
I had the power
to turn it all
around for you...

You know I'm here
if you want to touch.

OhSweetJelly~
I cry for you, for your loss, for the time that never seens to come when there won't be tears~

Tears dilute the sorrow .... so welcome them my dear~
I love you~

the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

You just wrote me to silence.

This captures the gravity, the confusion, edged with anger and shock, and the disbelief of irreversible loss.

Hugs, jb.

Hello jellybeans. SIGH! This tears my heart out. So sad dear friend. Know you are in my thoughts.

Remember, if you're not part of the future, you're history!
