A one way street…

  A one way street,  sweet baby
Pretty lady called me lover, she called me friend. She told me, I need you near and please hang around dear Johnnie. I told her, sweetie, lover, my pretty one. You called me at two am, knocked on my door at three. You speak black words, white words than you escape again. What are we? Just a lullaby written about a sweet lady, liking the one way street. Love hard, love sweetly and your eyes on the door. Love beckon escape before the sorrow and pain comes alive.
She smiled , her hazel eyes turned soft blue and she whispered. You and I. We love the grey sky, we love the long highway and we love the long night. We are the fire and the wood. Burn hard and fast, we steal kisses, fulfilled needs that we cannot know peace. We are friends…

Moving On (Or Not)

smokeface

I sat at the window

In my lonely house

And scrutinized the

Sad summer moon.

Find another lover

On the lawn below,

A lurking black cat

Shape-shifted thru

Indistinct shadows.

Move on, she’d said

The soft moonlight

Somehow soothed

The all-enveloping

Sorrow in my soul.

Swear it on my life

I reluctantly got up

And threw my butt

Away as well as my

Old marriage vows.

You made a promise

In minutes, I was at

A single’s bar, both

Hoping and hoping

Not to find a lover.

The experts are great at giving us part of the story. They say showing up is half the battle. I keep waiting, reading, but the remaining 50% never materializes. Maintaining your schedule, cultivating the dedication to do the task at the appointed hour, those are the first steps. Focusing on and managing your personal energy levels is the second variable in the equation.

To manage your power stores, you must know the mental and physical strength your daily planned activities demand. I am a bonafide introvert, and prolonged socializing zaps me. Group projects, being asked to answer a question when I didn’t volunteer, parties, people on my flight who talk incessantly, even shopping, and loud venues exhaust me. The ordeals leave my nerves jangling; I feel anxious, depressed, and I am left with an intense desire to be alone.

Necessity has led me to create coping mechanisms. Where possible, I…
