I've been writing for a long time. I'm published on Amazon; I won't link that. I've ended at poetry after a bit of a hiatus (married w/ 3 kids).

    Try: running out of time

    Try harder!
    Do better!
    Focus!

    Why can't you?
    You're making excuses!
    You determine the course of your life.

    Just get started.
    Get out of bed!
    Don't sleep.

    If you really wanted it…

    What do you want?
    Do you even know?
    Is anyone else tired?

    Work!
    Play!
    Live in the moment!

    But don't forget what you want but you can't have.
    But let go of the things…
    But-but-butt

    I wish I was 8.
    You wish you were 8?
    I wish I was eight.

    You've got kids.
    I'm very tired.
    Do better.

    The past haunts.
    Am I too late?
    “…write like your running out of time?”

    Words echo!
    I think I'll delete this one.
    This isn't good enough.

    Nobody's going to like it.
    I'm not any good.
    Too old or too young.

    Is anyone else tired?

    FOCUS!
    Focus.
    focus…

    TRY!
    Try.
    try…

    Sleep?
    Meditate?
    Appreciate?

    Online Rants
    Cries for help?
    Screaming shrieking for help or…

    Real human connection.

    They don't have kids.
    They don't have to…
    They they they - compare

    And don't sleep…

    But sleep
    But Meditate
    Butt appreciate

    She likes those with stars
    Magic In her eyes upon thars
    Follow for more haik-
    .

    Is anyone else this tired?

    Why do I write instead of sleep?
    Why do I think it matters?
    Why do you write like your running out of time?

    Warm night on the dock /

    Stars sparkle across the waves /

    Her eyes sparkle too

    I once watch a video in which the host informed me that his passion was helping me with my social media. I had to turn off the video. #passion #haiku

    Shout “Find your passion” /
    Repeat ad infinitum /

    An Ode to a Bourbon

    I pour the ambrosia into a highball glass
    That is a strong and worthy chalice
    It calls to me as it did to Alice

    Its color is golden. It is liquid brass.
    It has a sweet scent of some peppery wood
    That hides the heat that does call to my blood.

    Now, to my lips, I bring the brown liquor
    And down my throat, it flows; godly ichor.
    It burns a little, a very pleasant feel
    Like some embrace; it is as strong as steel.
    It’s carried by blood through my veins to my brain,
    Bringing that foggy contentment again.

    This is a haiku that I've been playing around with.

    Nameless Bar Haiku

    They sit at the bar /

    They speak of no songs or hope /

    The soldiers lost friends

    Poetic Relief

    IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH A BREAKUP
    OR A LOSS OF SOME OTHER KIND
    WHY NOT WRITE A POEM?
    AND POST IT HERE ONLINE.
    IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE GOOD.
    IN FACT, IT'S BETTER NOT TO JUDGE

    YOU COULD EVEN KEEP IT TO YOURSELF AND THEN EAT ALL THE FUDGE!
    BUT DON'T TRY TO IMPRESS SOMEONE
    OR ANYONE BUT YOU.
    JUST WRITE YOUR WORDS STRAIGHT FROM YOUR HEAD
    IT MAY HELP YOU FIND
    RELIEF!

    Mirakee, First impressions

    So, I've been posting on Instagram for a while, and that's been fun but I saw that this Mirakee was a place. So, I'm all like, oh let's go over there it's all about the writing.

    Only to come here and find that I still need to upload my drawings to go with the poetry to get attention. I thought that was what Instagram was for! What's with all of the brightly colored backgrounds!

    Not only that, I have no idea how to upload my pictures on here!

    And, I suppose that I still have to like and follow all of the people in order to get anywhere. I already do that on Instagram. This doesn't seem to be any different!

    I think the similarities here are obvious. So obvious that I wouldn't be surprised if this simile was made before!

    Love is like a Volcano

    Our love was like a
    Volcano!

    Searing hot intensity and
    Passionate explosions

    The rivers of my life were redirected,
    And the sky was blacked out
    only leaving us two.

    but the end left desolation
    where abundant life had been,
    and the startling unbearable silence
    across my forlorn
    skin

    It's easy to always blame the other person when a relationship ends but, in the end, it's usually true that both participants are to blame!

    Growth and Reconciliation

    FOR YEARS AND YEARS I BLAMED YOU
    I UNDERSTOOD MY GRIEF
    IN LINE WITH ALL THE STORIES
    THAT GENDERED BLAME BELIEF.

    IT’S ALWAYS THEM
    IT’S NEVER YOU
    THE CAUSE OF ALL THE PAIN
    EVENTUALLY...I FIGURED OUT
    THAT WE WERE BOTH TO BLAME

    BUT WE WERE YOUNG
    AND BOTH SO NEW
    THE EMOTIONS BURNED SO HOT
    I REALIZE HOW I HURT YOU TOO
    APART NOW, WE ARE STRONG
