I had to chuckle at myself this morning.
Sometimes I come up with stuff that totally amuses me.
Maybe not anyone else but that it does me.
Twice off today friends have been feeling down/not quite sure what was going on.
Both friends are far off from me.
And with Covid were I to attempt this it would have to be done stealthily.
Looking around corners.
Making sure the Covid police are not coming.
Than and only than can I do this action.
Come here.
I know you are feeling sad.
Let me…..hug you.
I give awesome hugs.
I envelope a person in my arms and I talk to them.
And suddenly I am about three times my usual size and they are tiny.
And I make it better for a short time period.
So there you have it.
My clandestine activity.
Carried out under the cover of darkness.
Bear hugs.
Don’t believe me?
I can get you references.

Endless Time

Hard
no explanation
no words
encompass
emotions fled
tears fall
voiceless
mouth moves
no one
never anyone
hears
caught up
caught behind
false life
pretending glories
mirrored falsities
one upon another
building
lives further
further from truth
further from sanity
further from…..
very 
very 
sad.
Wrapped
wet linens of melancholy
trapped
burgeoning fears
standing on the lip
bizarre mirage
flickering in the future
never
to be found…..
oasis lost.
Sad
truly
truly 
sad.
Wade the depths
sink slowly
beneath
blue waves
float
graceless
eyes wide
tears gather
stars wonder
last breath
time to say good bye
for this sad
it has climbed within
unable to find succor
I want it all to end.
