don't know what to feel
hate you; love you
lost in the confusion
I get what I want
yet I'm left
when you leave
dynamic is changing
you no longer chase me,
was it only ever a hope
you hurt me
but I hurt me too
for trusting so
It was last night
that the white monster
across the quiet country.
above the fields
what came on it's path
Over the vast fields
I noticed that he silently
but surely did his job
covering all in mist
Only the tallest trees
were lucky enough
to tower above his
Early morning sun
already warming up
trying to contain evil
Through the shreds
she evaporated the mist
with pale golden rays
The idyllic picture
to my heart.
If only everything
was so easy too
I wear autumn
Upon my shoulders
Some say I hold fire
My paws dark as coal
And when I run
I am the fog
Early morning mist
Disappearing into the trees
I laugh haunting the shadows
To be mistaken for ghosts
That is autumn--those spirits
And they run their fingers
Through my coat
Favorites poem... this one is my favorite animal
Clouded vision by these things that haunt me,
Still waking up from yesterday’s fog
While stressing over tomorrows possibilities.
I feel like I'm seeing everything
Through foggy windows.
The details they blur
And I can't tell who's friend or foe.
If there's danger
I can't see it.
I'm blind to the reality
That I know haunts me silently.
is it too soon, to hope this is true
can I say it now, and share my new view
fogs are lifting and hope is back
the sun will come out and get us on track
if all goes well and unity returns
democracy will follow around the next turn
arguments and yelling will soon be replaced
kindness and friendship should return in great haste
looking forward to the change in the world we all know
go out there and help this new message to grow.....

Car light bright
Door lock tight
End of slog
Prepare for fog
the spirits of our forefathers are turning in their grave
our land has been home to freedom and liberty for years
why would we allow the orange fog to control and suppress that right
our founders fought for and gained that right for us
why would some question, and want that privilege squashed
is it a reality that has come to stay?
NO, is the only answer here
let our ancestors know that democracy is not in hiding....

A cloud rests on the surface of the earth
and my heart, like a paperweight,
tethers me to the stormy waters.
I can’t foresee where I’m heading.
But there’s something in the heavy air
compelling my lungs conform to the feeling
of letting go
