Credit: ORIENTO via Unsplash I don’t know why there’s disease, Why cells kill each other. Why our immune systems turn, Or our brains suck too much cortisol; Too little or too much Seratonion. I don’t know why the world’s fractured, And all these bad things terribly matter. I don’t know why we love, but love’s … Continue reading Poem: Free Verse – “Knowing Why” #amwritingpoetry #GDGC

Credit: Jeremy Bishop via Unsplash Words of many inked, But, from yours I hide and shrink. Afraid to glow, Afraid of your caustic blows. So, terrified you’ll destroy a flicker of hope; Words can deconstruct and maim, Sometimes I have to hide the truth; I dimmed my light. Become a shadow within the spotlight — … Continue reading Poem: Free Verse – “Out of Reach” #amwriting #poetry #GDGC

Never say never, you’ll eat your words, For I cannot except limitations, Especially when they’re unsure. Perhaps, I am usual, and change is difficult; But every now and then I’ll throw a curve … Continue reading Poem: Free Verse – “Never Say Never”#amwriting #poetry #GDGC

Credit: Ol Klein via Unsplash Soulful and sweet -- That's what his eyes were like. Shaded-black running shoes, And faded jeans that fit snug; He's put together, White shirt sleeves pushed up muscled forearms. Eyes soulful and sweet; he caught mine.

Happy Monday! I'm not sure if I've shared this poem on here. When I was six-years-old, in grade one, my teacher used to read us Shell Silverstein poems in class. I had the same teacher, Mrs. Allarie, for grades one, two, and three, so I was able to here a few books worth of Shell … Continue reading Poem: Shell Silverstein – “Where the Sidewalk Ends” #GoDogGoCafe #poetry #poets
Credit: Chad Madden via UnSplash I tore transparent tissue wings, Yanked out the pincer blade; A kite easing far off and free. I had to isolate, hang on by threads. I’m not who I was, I burned outside the fire’s ring — And you cannot alter time; What happened, happened.
