enough nothing

ENOUGH NOTHING

Nothing
is ever enough
to fill the vacuum
of an empty soul.
When the eyes
no longer shine,
and the smile
is pasted, fake,
when the heart
no longer skips
and the soul
no longer flies …
there is never enough.

There is never enough light,
nor joy,
nor love,
nor freedom.

Such a void
cannot be filled
-maybe-
there is only enough
sadness.

acrostic

Suddenly I feel
Outrageously overwhelmed, the
Meager moments of time
Eventually are not enough.
Take your time.
In fact, why bother?
My feelings mean nothing.
Endings, beginnings
Sadly, they become the same.
Interesting
Having had what I wanted,
And knowing I now do not
Takes my breath away.
Everyone sees my pain,
Maybe.
Yesterday
Love filled my heart
Inside now, I am dry
Finding ashes , scraps
Everywhere.

Lady

2016-03-22 16.35.16

 

This is Lady, after she took her last breath.  She suddenly got sick over the weekend.  She stopped eating, and only drank water, which she could not keep down.  I took her into the vet in the morning, and she rapidly deteriorated.  I was able to get back to the vet just before she died.  We are all so sad.  It was so sudden.  We were not ready.

Rest In Peace, sweet Lady.  You were and still are, so very loved.

SPACE BETWEEN

SPACE BETWEEN

There is no silence
no beauty
no peace
in the space between
dreams
and
nightmares.
The emptiness
swallows life.
The hollowness
exhales pain.

The space between
sanity
and
madness
breeds dark doubt
and vicious visions.
Waves of unease
wash over the heart
wandering between
the scars of today
and
the pain of tomorrow.
