Storytelling without words
Paintbrush in hand
Strokes of colors in various hues
Painting what I see, what I know
Creating masterpieces on canvas
This is what I've always done
This is what I do best
Life, alas, is too short
At sixty five young, a new skill
Switching paintbrush to...
Then dark clouds rushed in from the south
Thunder, bright flashes of summer lightning
Torrential rain pounding upon our one window
The four of us a bit too high, but not that dry
Having sought shelter from the elements again
Inside a double occupancy room at the Afton...
I really love my EP FRIENDS
I know that they are there
for me each day when I log on
their thoughts with me to share
We're like POOH BEAR and all his friends
Piglet - Eeyore - Tigger - Owl and Roo
Who share and care for everyone
and exchange thoughts the whole day through
action I feared would take place.
And I cannot ha no not a chuckle for a smile takes a toll on my face.
I cannot sniffle nor blunder no longer to walk blindly is a disgrace.
I shall sit in the dark the stale dull dark and stay still for the light again.
that were above me..floating yesterday..
The dark clouds, that i thought, i had left behind..
They have started following me again, giving me the pain..
the pain that i thought, i had left behind, cleared with the rain..
with the rain.. from the clouds.. the dark clouds..

Days spent happy,
Days spent so low.
Face full of spots,
Feeling so old,
No one will want me,
So iv been told.
Tiredness is dragging me down,
Tears I hide behind my smile,
As I push through the day,
Barely making a sound.
The darkness is coming,
.a.bitter sweet symphony , like the sound of me and you...
Take my hand, for more than just this dance , the journey will be worth it, just take the chance.

I cried for days when I left
My world fell apart
Nothing was whole
Everything was hard
Trusting people was impossible

It's been so long since I heard her sweet voice.
The way her laughter filled my heart with love.
All that's left now is the shadow of her in my mind.
I will smile and walk through life.

Celestial bodies pin points of light
Punctuates the purple-black of night.
Stardust dancing, shimmering bright.
Stargazing brings me delight.
Moonbeam's golden rays of light
Descends its beam this night.
I wish I may, I wish I might
Climb upon its beam so bright.
A war within us we can't overcome ,yet we carry on like soldiers to deaths beating drum.
We wear a mask that carries a smile, so others can ignore us for a little while. Underneath my mask an invisible tear my soul begging you not to leave me here. Alone in my thoughts, my...

as I am yours, till death parts us
or till our next great fight,
where we don't talk for days
and stumble with grudging souls
back into each others arms
content, finding solace in our anger
knowing whatever happens
I will always be yours and you mine
Yet so bright,
Covered in darkness,
But the stars make it light,
Is this where the angels lie,
Watching down on our life's,
Around in the darkness,
Brightened by light,
Are these the stars,
Our loved ones,
Living on as stars? X
WHAT FIVE THINGS DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WINTER ?
I'm still young enough to make a SNOWMAN
I'm still young enough to ride a sledge
I'm still young enough to have a go man
But when I ski I don't go near the edge !
Any excuse to drink MULLED WINE
it send a tingle up your spine !
(I wrote it a while ago though)
Whys it so hard to imagine
Why do I have to be so afraid
To see a future with you being with me
Why am I so lost
Lost in what hasn't happened
Lost in what I've been through
Why does it have to be so tricky
hands outstretched, reaching
toward nothing, no one hand
to grasp, to catch, to hold.
The long stretch-shot in slow-mo
t-i-o-n, hair whips into my eyes
falling, without wings,
fat little kiwi, brown, nondescript.
I’m clawing for the ledge
a foot above my head,
ANGELS ARE EVERYWHERE !
Angels of Peace
Angels of Hope
Angels of Joy
Angels of Comfort
Angels of Light
We don't always see them
We don't always hear them
But they are always there !
To help to comfort to bless
To support and to encourage !
Sometimes they come in human form
To taste her salty skin on my lips
And caress her face.
Dragging one thumb across her forehead, down her cheeks and down her mouth; Dragging back her Cupid's bow, ready to fire.
To love with passion without loving at all.
Might I dare know the name of my coy mistress.
Except whom bestowed.
You must enter in this way or that.
Carry no disguise and leave the shame
Plea no bargain and feel the same
I can't tell it to you, if I wanted to
it's a matter of reminding the soul
The sense of touch is a precious gift
I love to touch and be touched - all over !
Our fingers and our lips and other zones
are very sensitive to touch and be touched.
In fact the whole of our skin (which really
is the biggest organ in the human body)
is replete with sense...
and baby, you've got mine. Honey, I need you...here tonight.
Don't stop, until you're home again. Come on back to me...never leave me alone...please.
I'm crying out, curled in a ball, lost and all...I see...is tears. It's been this way, for too long.
You left...and I died...
I love Autumn it's an excuse to wear
fabulous coats of every colour and
fabric and style. I'm not a rich girl
and I don't have a Sugar Daddy (any
offers ?) but I love the styles on the
High Street and - like all my Sisters -
I love any excuse to shop for clothes !
but I like writing.....
Baby you're poison and wine
I can sip on you all day and not be hazy
I might be crazy but I love to overdose on you
I'm a alcoholic but when I'm with you all the pain goes away and I'm sober
I'm empty you're a potion of devotion for your poison
Sailing amongst the tidal waves
Wrestling with natures forces
On a voyage through mist and haze
She rests her heavy anchor
On the depths of the ocean bed
When she reaches the bay
Where her sailors are ahead
The Sea-guls cry
When it's time to set sail
You can hear the...

This poem is written by my younger sis. This is her very first poem and it is dedicated to our mom, who is no more in this world. I just want to share it over here...
I MISS YOU...
My life without you is mere fiction
I need your warmth and affection
Your arms held me...
resides in me, now I in her
You see, only her place accepted me
And she is good and caring, a lot
And now I feel smothered in her webs
Breathing still Gasping for life.
• I look at her , teary eyed
The classic triad of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness stinks from...

..I see...you standing in front of me.
Seeming...to be...careless and free.
I call out to you, but you don't reply. Why? I know not.

You watch her flit between the mirrors and the boys,
slurring drunken kisses between the lines,
she was prettier before, you surmise.
Now she laughs easy, but it isn’t real,
you remember the tire-tracks and the shrill
of nightingales and the rain.
