Caring and Tender

Dearly beloved
all gathered here today
to watch as we enshrine this heart
to wrench free the source of caring
of love and pain
and bind it within a jeweled cask
so nevermore can it offend.
Find not the sorrow that awakens
as in the dawn we chant
spells of change and reclaimation
ensuring that this heart
is chained and wrapped so tight
so as not to have a chance to be free.
See not the anger and hatred
that consume this life
that make me such a bitch
only mark the time that passes
life hardened and incomplete.
It is with great sadness that we renounce your claim
this heart will become the companion to all
forever more shall you walk
in bleakness and disrepair
while we huger for that force.
The force to feed the whole of humanity
the force to become the warrior
the force that is going to make it all right
grown within the heart you catupulted from your chest.
Caring and tender
the emotions you bear
turned out to all who claim
while you lay barren upon the sands of time
a murder overhead,
watching your bones become bleached in the sun.

A Good Day

It strikes me as so odd;

I can tell varying degrees of how my mood has changed.

Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I was oh so sad.

Medication bumped up by an extra 150 mg.

Wednesday I was able to discern that I was happier. Had a small blip on the happiness radar but I recovered.

Today is Thursday, and although I still want to hide away, selfishly taking an entire day as a me day (I am off) I am able to tell yet again, that my happiness level has risen and my sadness level has lowered.

It is going to be a good day.
