Here are two more poems, one from about five years ago, the other from seventeen, beginning with the most recent:

 

A fog of confusion wreaths the mind so densely

  that thought finds it impossible to navigate

  through to the outside world of comprehension

Imprisoned in a sleepless limbo and isolated by a sea of fearful lonliness,

  the body cries out for the gentle caress of a human hand

  as the soul mourns the separation from its mate

Life is very different than it was five years ago when I was blogging here on a regular basis. It is different than two years ago when I posted for the last time prior to now as well. I moved...from WA to AL to PA back to AR...the last two on my own. I went through a devastating divorce, my marriage ending after 13 1/2 years, watched my exhusband remarry the best friend whose children I had helped raise for 2 years, and walked away from it all. I went through 2 other failed relationships, but le...

Flipping through radio stations on the long drive home, I came across one playing some old familiar tunes I hadn't heard in years....it was amazing the immediate gut reaction I had....Home Sweet Home (Motley Crue)...my heart's like an open book, for the whole world to see...it is, really. How strange is it that I feel like a worn, little known classic, first edition, even, just waiting for someone to recognize the worth of what they've stumbled upon lying in their path, snatch it up ...

The past few days have been a complete roller coaster, extreme ups and downs with little reason and less warning. Saturday ended up being a great day despite the panic and guilt at the beginning. Sunday I was late to church, but I did make it. My sleep cycle has been so off the last couple of months it's not even funny. But Sunday was pretty good as a whole until after I got home from dinner with a friend. I parked myself in front of the computer, intending to wait for 30 minutes or so befo...

Last week I spent most of my time working on updating my resume so I could submit my application for a job that I really wanted on post that closed on Friday. That meant alot of time on the computer and online. I was also working on a series of classes (non-credit) online so I could include them on my resume, as I knew...
