Some of You
Mrs Timetable Sep 11
Some days
You will feel
Like a fine wine
Dressed up and fantastic
By your buffet of friends
Some days
You feel like
Watered down kool aid
Artificial at best
Trying to be
Something you aren't
In a world parched of love
You will find both will do
However you feel
Share what you have
Some of you
Some days we aren't our best. But we all still need each other to refresh

You can try to fix it
Or just live with it
But dont fix it
Til its damaged

Carbon steel can be easily damaged.  The human heart is so much more fragile.
Good "life" analogy.

Perfect in a box

Blurry Dreams
Mrs Timetable Jul 17
The blur of grey
I felt it as you snuck up on me
Trying to hide from it
Should I show you my face
I'd never seen that in you before
You fumbled your words
Watching and waiting
I'm not brave enough
I'll wait till you are
Have you ever had a dream you cant explain, maybe only in pieces and it still makes no sense? Sounds like hide and seek.

Kinda don't like your taste
Not sure what flavor
You're supposed to be
Maybe generic Barbie?

Still very cute

Sugar Spun Sky
Mrs Timetable Jun 14
I watched you swim
Under the blue raspberry
Pink vanilla
Sugar spun sky
The nostalgia of your innocence
Made me realize
My life could not be any sweeter
Than this
Then you proved me wrong
With your gazed upward view
And whispered
I want to be just like you

Adore (II)

I dreamt of you again
This time in color
Colors never seen before
The shades of you
Didn't speak
But the
Color from your lips kiss
Was Adore
Tell me more

The Fiance
Mrs Timetable Apr 16
Seeing her turn around
Watching him
Walk into the room
Both adorned
Made his way to her
Leaned over the row of chairs
Her upper body pulled towards him
An embrace
His left hand
On her long dark hair
Disheveled upon where
Her neck meets her face
And then a sweet kiss
On her bloomed cheek
Meant just for her

Everything in my mind stopped...
This meant so many things to them
Hello my love
How are you? My best friend
My future
All the meanings of love
I've seen this before
Havent I?
Ever so openly
Simply done
When a older one kisses a baby
A mate kisses you goodnight
Kissing someone you've missed
This simple expression

But this
So secretly beautiful
In full view
Kindness and respect
For each other

In my mind
I looked around
And asked myself
Was I the only one
Who saw it the way I did?
True story.

I love it when a man puts his hand on a womans face and kisses her. I melt.

Pretend nap
Mrs Timetable Feb 23
Pretend naps make
Imaginary dreams
Singing no lyrics
Dancing with me
Twirls I can't feel
My mouth is watering
The thirst is real
I need a real nap
So I can dream of you
I said I was going to take a pretend nap at lunch time and this is what came of it

My small words

But then I remembered
My breadcrumbs keep

You preferred the sunrise
But saw only gloom
Seeing your best friends
Tucked away in your memory
Took over
Lit up the room
His smile did that

Hot white
Mrs Timetable Nov 2022
Watching you wait
Tanned from the sun
Your glistening glow
On your week grown dark shadow
In your hot white shirt
Almost too hot to touch
Sitting on a Santorini wall
Your piercing dark features
Looking for me
Waiting for me
While I watch you
An image of my thoughts

Drawn in ink
Mrs Timetable Oct 2022
I can see the
Unfinished man
In pencil
That drawing that's missing
The outline of you
The curves of you forming
But still not whole
Still seeing who you might be
What moves you make
I can even see where
You have been erased
Mistakes have been drawn over
Paper is worn a little
Even torn
I'll be patient
I'll wait
For you to fill in
Get your lines straight
For you to be complete

Drawn in ink
Inspired by my nieces incomplete anatomy drawings in pencil

One tear
Mrs Timetable Aug 2022
I wish you could see
How big my tear looked from my vantage
Feel how big it felt falling
From the corner of my eye
Down my face
My mouth
My blanket
Only one tear?
That's all
I had the strength for
Dont worry. Just trying to be a little dramatic. I love a good cry

Still moment
Mrs Timetable Jul 2022
Standing on a porch
Living in your dream
Quiet still shadows
Shimmers on the water
Born of imagination
West view open water
Distant lake shoreline
Distant on the horizon
Flashes of lightning
So far off
No thunder
The stillness
The water like glass...
Homesick for the mystery
The unknown
I didn't long for anything else
In those moments
Moments, savor them

Emotionally Instrumental
Mrs Timetable May 2022
Even if the lyrics
To our song
Were none
It could be
A beautiful one...
My heart is
To be filled
By your notes and chords
Go ahead
Practice on me...
I am here
Sometimes there just aren't enough words to express our deepest emotion...but music alone can convey it...just take the time to listen

Your voice
Deep soft tone
Is a comfort
Puts me to rest

I needed this gift
One of my favorite things is when he reads to me

Accidental events

Unconsciously drawn
To a peril
You can control

Unresolved grief

Created equally
Coping with any loss isn't the same for everyone. Trying to understand.
Do you consider not being able to have something you desire a loss? Is the loss itself worse than the coping?

I was once you
Mrs Timetable Jan 2022
I want to grow
As fast as my cat
I wanna be big already
How can I do that?

It’s ok to be young
Don’t worry it will come
You will grow fast enough
My child my little one

But I’m too small
Kids make fun
The tree over my shadows
Covering me from the sun

You will grow soon my dear
You will sprout quickly
In another year
No need to fear

Sigh. I guess you are right
You were young once too
Seeing pictures with grandma
I wish I knew the small you

You know me now
I’m telling you child
I’m still that little person
Deep down inside

You know how I feel?
Yes my child, I do
How do you know for sure?
Because I was once you, then I grew
Our parents were once children too
