A Son's Thanksgiving
By Donald M. Schwartz, Nov. 22, 2007
My mother has advanced Alzheimer's
But there is thanksgiving and gratefulness,
Hidden within the sorrow.
I ink my thoughts,
On this 2007 day of thanks,
For the strength of my Mother's true spirit is rolling, it...
she had made up her mind this was it, she couldnt take it anymore, so while everyone was gone she packed a bag, took her favorite cat n walked out the door. she roamed aimlessly 4 days, just drove n drove w/ no direction in mind. she thought to herself know they will see how...
A poem I wrote, and hope you like...
One day I was so poor,
The next I had much more,
The Lottery is Great,
Find a celeb to date,
I love all this money,
Can go somewhere sunny,
Imagine all the things,
This lovely money brings,
I could get a new car,
And go ever so far...
its beautiful, sun up and shining; bright and puts aglow to all..
stars to be seen in the clear dark night.. twinkles as you wish upon a shooting star..
all is calm and peaceful.. te bird whistle a lullaby, the breeze make music through the trees as the world sleeps and dreams...
Everything is for sale!
Going out of business!
I hung the sign, hand painted, just so, in the dusty window for passersby to see.
I carefully disguised myself as a package and set myself on the shelf, an empty core of who I was, what I could have...
He will keep me....
Keep me close and safe
Away from danger and knowledge
Keep me secure and stable
Always with predictable calls
Keep me far enough to miss the look
But close enough to feel the pain
Keep me undressed and laid on my back
Always on top with his...
There are people in my hallway, hallway.
People there for me.
There are people in my hallway, who follow, follow me.
There are people in the yards, people at the store.
There are people through my windows. Sometimes, people at my door.
But the people in my hallway, they're the...
If I told you how I felt would it still be so much fun
I wonder if the secrets
are what makes it so exciting
Hiding in the dark and kissing in the shadows
Friends by the light of day; Lovers through the dark of
In the beginning it was simple
plain and true
a yearning, a need
as desire consumes me
my body seizes to heed
to the rules; no boundaries
the passion burning
like a blazing fire
hungry and consuming
a charging sensation
runs through my body
as you slowly bring your lips to mine...
I've been dabbling here and there when it comes to poetry, prose, and my philosophical views. Unfortunately for me, it takes time, so I don't always write. It may take anywhere from an hour to a few months before I can come up with a new poem. When i can write one down, however...
change the world? What about the parrot? Yes, I admit it-the world we now live in is my fault...though the parrot isn't without blame either.
It has been 3 1/2 months since my birthday. For my present, I had gotten a parrot. Yes, a parrot. You know those little winged beasts...

Connie Irene and Bonnie Jean are sisters, in that -
They are identical twins, in fact.
They are great tale weavers.
So much so, you became believers.
Are one of their games.
They think its amusing,
But it's very confusing,
When teasing family and friends.
Every day is like hell without you
The sun does not brighten up my day when we're apart
The moon does not give me light when I'm alone at night
Even the stars are not sparkling tonight
I don't know why all the things became strange when you left me behind
I feel so weak every...
tears that wont fall, pain that never ends, the blade of the knife beckons to me, i think of the end, will it be n escape from this pain r a doorway to more, i scream out in rage i feel the cold warmth of the knifes blade, will i no longer feel this pain, i wonder as my life...
done in the exact order. Why things had to be in the exact same spot. Why she cod use a whole hour if her life walking back and forth. Wondering what she always thought about. Wondering if she ever would let her in.
when you never know when I'm here. I walk through your hallways. You hear me but you never see me. As my feet run across your floor, you never seem to find me. I laugh as you panic. I won't hurt you...or will I. Are you scared? The half of you say no yet you always run. I lived...
I want to be the girl
he gives his hoodies to wear
and cuddles up to
when it's cold.
I want to be the girl
he comes up behind
and wraps his arms around, while
whispering in her ear, "You're Beautiful".
I want to be the girl

when he doesn't...
You used to look at me and thought you knew what i was all about, but you didn't even touch the surface, of who i am, or was.
You saw what you wanted to see, and after all this time i can tell you now ... What you saw was never me.
I miss you soo much
I miss your loving touch
I miss the way you look at me
I miss the way you make me see
that all the world can disappear
as long as you are with me here
Seeing your smile brightens my day
And hearing your voice...
problems piled so high
i needed help just to survive
searched the web low and high

dry your tears wipe ur eyes
for e. p. will take ur hand and
guide you in this world of lies
and so i found myself within the
Side by side, they strode through the quad. While their driver licenses said they were the same height, Jason just always looked taller. The difference was even more pronounced today. Today Eric was beaten.
Eric was done talking. He was tired.
Jason began, “Can I give you...
To what great honor, do I owe the pleasure of remembering how to forget?
Wandering thoughts, scattered memories.
Come dance, dance, dance!! Play upon the times of tranquility and serenity.
Ruffled pictures, ruptured synchronization...they all slow to a stop.
VANISH! The scurrying...

Poor little squirrely;
I hit you with my car.
I did not mean to do it;
It was an accident by far.
I did not want to smash your tail,
Or squish your brains to mush.
You can’t imagine how bad I feel,
at having hurt you such.
I tried to hit the brakes,
but still I...
The waves come crashing in around me. I scramble to reach a surface to cling to, anywhere to regain my balance, but am unable to get to my feet so I can breathe. I’m smashed by another wave, submerged and tumbling, spinning, dizzy. I feel the...

You remind me of the Northern Lights...
Graceful when they move,
Elegant and beautiful
Wear the same colors...
Turquoise, greens, purples, reds and blues,
I don't get to see them as much as I'd like
But when I do see them I consider myself so blessed,
So full of energy
