Always A Magental-man

Updated on January 3, 2010

Always a Magental-man!



I am purple

like a bruise
when life smacks

me down to size,
bringing the

contusions of confusion
that wound my soul,
but also lavender

like a crocus
bursting forth

from the bitter earth
springing back from

the coldness of despair
to bask in the

sunshine of love.

I am Barney

to my child,
large and fuzzy

in my love for him
as we wile away

the hours at play.

I am passionately purple
to the very

tip of my needs
with my love shared in
those rare moments
of flesh blending.

I am plum tickled
at the joys of life
but I can become
violet with an n added
when rage besets me
at the wounding of
anyone that I care for.

It is then that
the grapes of wrath
are pressed into whines
from the aggressors
who sought pain.

I am a palette

of amethyst
splashing my colors
across the world,
till the sunset

of my life,
brings purple

clouds to weep
over the grave
that marks

my passing.

      many shades... many shades.. Your kid must be half grown now at least, Barney isn't even on anymore, is he? :)
