Alone…

Small hints of demise
Twisting down in the abyss
Descent is alone

You’ll Never Be Lonely…

I wrote this around age 15 for my brother who bravely joined the Navy during Desert Storm. We are lucky neither of us are significantly maimed the way we fought! But we always loved each other very much!!! He is back and has a beautiful family!!

Do you ever get lonely and look in the sky
And pick out a star that’s way up high
And on it you make one single request
And leave it up to God to do the rest
You’ll never be lonely when you wish on a star
Because someone is wishing on it at the same time you are
Think of someone you love when you look in the sky
And pick out a star that catches your eye
Make a wish known only by you.
And someone out there will make the same wish too……

Protective Vessel…

image

A glass vessel stalks his sanity,
Traps him in a protective shell.
Set adrift upon the ocean of his mind,
No navigation, no sail.

Unsinkable, dry and safe,
Able to rest with ease.
A Bystander in his own waking dream,
This prison is his reprieve.

To loneliness’ torment he’s numb.
He’s lived most of his life alone.
All the world offered him was pain,
This is now his home.

The doctors say the medication will help.
They will pull him back from his isolation.
From the fantasy world in which he dwells,
They don’t understand this IS his liberation.

Time will tell if the glass will break.
If the raging see will recede.
If his vessel of protection is broken,
Will he simply sink?
