Sorry Everyone.

I really thought I was on top of things, I did . Yet I am really struggling it’s like wading through mud. I feel so low and truly I don’t know why.

Yet again I have deleted every thing in my in box …I hate doing that because it makes me feel I am binning so many wonderfully written and thought out posts.

But the black dog is lurking in the corner. I can’t fight it I am exhausted.

I just need a break , I don’t know how long. A day, a week a month who knows. Please remember I do love you all and I will be back as soon as whatever it is has gone, or whatever I have lost comes back . I came back too soon. 💜

Knife Crime.

There is blood on the floor

It trails in through the door

The Nurses are tired

Surgeons sick to the core.

Another young life

Cut short by a knife

Never to mature

Or have a child or a wife.

At least one everyday

Just statistics they say

As young as ten

Injured or worse life taken away.

Gangs growing feral

Young kids leave home at their peril

No matter your age

No one is safe from knife rage.

You know you are getting old when your bones are more accurate than the the weather men or women

I don’t know who said it but it is definitely true!

DESTITUTE

Goes to bed hungry

Probes the gap between her

teeth

But there nothing there

{Empty (hungry) Space (gap)}

Here are your two words for Here are your two words for this week: Empty & Space. Now the twist is we can only use synonyms for these words. I have chosen to write a Tanka. Read into this poem what you may. I feel it has more than one meaning.

EMPTY & SPACE

Filled with nothingness

The void is a vast expanse

We travel alone

Each locked in hollow feelings

Spent, expired in the dead zone.

Song Lyric Sunday. Bus/Truck/Lorry. 6/10/2019

This week Jim Adams at Newepiauthor has given us the prompt :Bus/Truck/Lorry. For Song Lyric Sunday.

I chose The Magic Bus by The Who. It was written by Pete Townshend and released in 1968. I had left school that year and was training as a window dresser. In a boutique called Birds, honestly it was called Birds and in was in West Ealing , West London.

The Who were a West London group and so my friends and I were big fans….. Fun days.

Happy days.

Mum, Me and Steve the dog back in the day.

Metastasi

Me, constant secret companion

Ever growing, spreading within

Taking over like a black plague

Adhering to your soft cells

Seeping through all organs

Ticking bomb like

Always there

Shading

In.

******
