2014 a Quick Wrap-up

During the course of 2014
We’ve lost friends and partners
Even some dreams

More losses in foreign battles
Others to domestic war

Live free (like me) or die
Screamed the American folk lore

Made it to the wrap-up
Been lucky You and I

Hopefully moving forward again
Let’s kiss this bitch goodbye

Final Angry Little Poem on this topic: Unrealistic Expectations

Unrealistic Expectations

A closing story
Swift and gentle
Consistent with
Her view of life

Moving on
No other option
Expecting time to
Dull pain’s knife

Lulu gently died at home on October 19. Moving on way too soon. Long may she run.

Angry Little Poem: Diminishing Returns

Diminishing Returns

She fades on
The easy times close
Only hard days now remain

Dark choice growing near
How many to allow
Measured time versus pain

Embracing what there is
We patiently
Wait for the sign

Another angry little poem: An Observation

Warning:
The tone of the next few poems will be a bit dark. Perhaps even maudlin. Lulu is moving on to whatever is next; I’m sharing the hurt…

An Observation

Watching her
Once so vibrant
Wilt

Forces a
Sight of frantic
Beauty
