~ To Loss

by ladyliterati

Loss perched

Perched upon my days
As I walked through life…

Life in a daze

Enduring what could not

Be changed.

Broken branches lie, decay

Roots lost to the winds

When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room

Distorted – nay, falsehoods – proclaimed

From forked tongues without restrain

~ Pieces of You, of Me

by ladyliterati

~ Pieces of You, of, Me

.
There is no time limit to grief

Just shock, horror, disbelief

And “well doers” seek a smile

Insisting grief is but a little while

But this cannot possibly be true;

~ Being Human

by ladyliterati

 

“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

by ladyliterati

~ Death Has No Victory

.
We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad,

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answers

~ Without Words…

by ladyliterati

~ Without Words
When the Poet no words to share

The soul lingers unaware

The inner voice cannot be heard

Collective conscious void of word

And the Poet – head bent in defeat

~ Giant of A Man

by ladyliterati

A dream took me to childhood places

Love and laughter, forgotten faces
But the memory of Daddy standing tall

While leaning against the kitchen wall

Woke me with great surprise

Tears of mourning, laughter filled my eyes
Recalling his polished black Oxford shoes

Silent Refrain – Lyrics

I’ve got a voice

Let me sing you a song

I’ve got a dream

Let me take you along

Show you how

It all went wrong

Have a seat

This may be strong
Momma taught me

To RESPECT all races

I read you like a book

What a daunting task

I finished at last –

~ ‘Neath the Daunting Drifts

by ladyliterati

Jonas Must Concede
Angry was the night

Defiant leaf on bare branch cling

As howling winds force chimes, sing
Swirl of blinding snow

Bites about ears and nose

Settles, soakes, freezes blue of tiny toes
Beded down night creature’s

Braving winter’s wrath
