The Extra Mile…

 xtra mile 3  If we walked a
mile in each others shoes,
would we take more care of the
paths
we choose?
Would it make us
reflect about others in
plight or would we sleep
easy, no nightmares to
fight. No hunger to stifle,
no thirst to implore,
would we walk a
mile, then one
mile more?

Connections…

 Chris Challice photos 021_1 We
stare eye to eye,
every day, putting on
make-up, nothing to say,
a reflection looks back,
’tis my face I know, sometimes
a connection as a smile starts to grow,
but at others there’s nothing
eyes meet with lips pursed
you’re me, as I’m you but
who’ll look away
first?

Sanity…

                 Sometimes I wonder                                                     
               am I quite sane?                                              
and              
                                
then                             
I                   
                    think                   
                              again
.           
Sometimes I think          
that madness is fraught
with ideas that circle,
but won’t be caught
The more you try
the less you gain
finding an idea
that will remain
within close range
not set to fly                  
                                        flitting away                              
as you say ‘bye, to sanity        
that noble beast where nothing
is left at
the Mad Hatters feast,         
as the mouse is kept within                          
the teapot, where madness reigns                     
and sadly, sanity does not.

This came to me as a thought, just a simple thought about how one views everyday things. How we can misconstrue and gain the wrong impression about someone. My slant on life gives me much pleasure and makes me laugh sometimes but am I sane? For I feel sure I have hidden from the powers that be and have escaped the straight jacket!!   😉

Redundancy…

eternal 
You told me you loved me,
told me fate had played a part
in bringing us together,
that I had touched
your heart.
You showered me
with little things
you thought
my heart desired,
except for one,
a need to know…
was my love
at                  
all     
required?

Inside Out..

rain_and_tears_by_voltuzaidi-d5j2yl3
Are you
overcome by sadness
when there’s no real reason why
sometimes the tears start falling,
nothing happened to make you cry.
Somewhere deep down inside
as if a switch clicks off then on,
the emotional time passes away
sadness and tears, both are gone
maybe dark thoughts had taken hold
without you ever knowing why,
now
fading,
a distant memory,
you smile, you continue..
and yet you sigh.

‘tis an old one, but one which still pulls, for the feelings return and ebb like the tides, forever in the thrall of the Moon…
