Mobius Strip (acrostic)*

Like these endless circling

Unilateral discussions

Keeping us from moving forward

Each in our own corner

Wavering not one bit

Armed with our own

Repeated hurts

Match ends, you’re always the winner


*Note: I like this version of Pat Benatar’s song, hope you do as well.

Written for:

Conditioning (acrostic)*

So I learned well to disregard

These feelings, you are the

Only reason that

I no longer feel or show emotion,

Clearly your actions erased them all


leaving me

in a barren waste land



to cry


*Note: written for

as always my song choice for this piece. 🌎 ✌🏻💙, Take care, be safe.

The Last Time *

Go he’d say

Over and over


So many times it was

screamed in my ear,

followed by

his heavy hand


Going wasn’t an option

Only if I had listened

In my gut I knew

Nothing would change

Gonna stay just the same


So many times

thinking it was love,

deep down

knowing it was fear


Gone I’ll be soon enough

Only now finding the courage

Now finding a way to escape

Endng this ‘love’ charade


Finally I obeyed you;

taking my child,

leaving you behind

while you were

out getting drunk.


No longer do I

hold my breath;

now I inhale



oh so

(On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. Yes, there is a song. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Handle with Caution *

Thinking I’d never have

need for it,

I pawned my heart

long ago.

Then you entered

my life, offering

me your love;

I handed you the

claim check,

willingly you took

possession of

my heart.

You promised to

hold it



careful never to

pull the pin

yet you did;

throwing it so far away it


into pieces.

Leaving me

once again to

mend it


As I walked

out this time,

I tore up

the ticket,


it into the bin.

As always there is a song enjoy. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.
