Dying From The Common Cold

I am sorry if I’ve hurt you.
My wish is to do no harm.
And yet I clumsily trip an avalanche,
While trying to keep warm.
.
So much time in left field,
As I strive to be in center.
Summer is fast approaching.
I’m frozen in a bitter winter.
.
Will I smile again?
Will the sun ever shine?
And why do I miss the kiss,
Of one who was never mine?
.
I’ve survived a thousand wars,
To merely die of the common cold.
And how does one fall so short,
Of dreams that once were bold?

The Ever-flowing River Of Time

Act straight!

Be normal!

Life should be,

Organized and formal.

.

It’s a straight shot.

It’s black and white!

Keep your eyes on the prize,

To get to the light!

.

But light is deflected,

As is done with a prism,

And the lack of insight,

Will fortify your prison.

.

It’s an ebb and flow,

And a continual sphere,

But be still and know,

And for now… be here.

.

Your dreams are still bold, Micky Dee. You write the truth with unflinching boldness and raw honesty. Never doubt that you are an inspiration.

I don't think you know how good you are, dearest poet.

This had me pressing all the buttons except funny.

Love you, man. Take care.
