Best Laid Plans…

    tumblr_m6eou2dYrz1r03t3lo1_500
          “Come in,            
sit down,
we’ll talk
over your plan”
so I sat, as I listened
to the officious looking man.
He seemed unfazed by my frowning face
his cheesy smile fixed,  almost super glued in place.
”Can I stop you there” I was rude enough to say,
for his manner was odd,
thus making me sway.
The room became darker
as painful words sank in,
like tiny daggers, aligned,  strangely making
me grin.
For pain can be a friend, adjusting senses from a tilt.
I ceased falling, I was safe, he was backing me to the hilt.
My Plan was effective, there was no doubt.
And the Plan?  For me to know,
and you?
To never
find out.

I have no idea, at all, where this came from, or what is meant precisely, I just went with the flow, and the flow brought me a question, which I assume will never be answered.  Rightly so methinks.     xx

Battle Eternal…

mortals have no say.
We are born,
thus we die,
’tis rightly
written this way.
The battle is never over
for neither side truly wins.
Good or evil cannot conquer,
they are co-joined as twins.

Equilibrium…

Animated-balance-weigh-scales
Troubles,
that weigh on the mind
some large, yet some the niggling kind,
giving cause to frowns that mar any face,
‘til equilibrium reasserts
putting
worry
in
it’s
place.

Wordsmith Tale…

Wordsmith
You dread such moments,
your brain is not your own,
all thoughts seem alien and unreal,
you feel estranged from everyday life,
sans ability to express what you feel.
Nothing
prepares you
for times such as these,
nothing at all
you can do
for being a wordsmith is your whole life
without that talent, what are you?
Yet there remains a hope
a thin line of chance,
the words
will                
again                       
dance                            
to                                        
your                                       
tune,                                     
for                                   
you                          

are                  
the           
     piper,
                       you pay

                                   no-one.
                                           To
                                                    such
                                                      fears
                                                     you       
                                                        must                
                                                            become                    
                                                      immune…

Alternative Christmas…

Hubble Spots a Celestial Bauble 
Christmas as a child seemed easy to me
food and presents in the bosom of the family.
Never knowing the hardship behind the scenes
the cost and emotion, sometimes loss of dreams.
Family splits, hurtful arguments and more
gain momentum by Christmas knocking on the door.
The Season for caring, loving and giving
is an alternative Christmas
from the one some are living.
It seems we’re judged by
the amount we spend,
too little or too much,
hardly matters in the end.
For the  barometer of how little you are worth,
is now a fact, become a mockery of Jesus’s birth…
