Time Travel

I wanted to
reach you
where you are
so I tried
to find you
I asked questions
to get to know
What makes U you

When I asked
how you were
handling your sadness
I didn't intend
to bring those tears

Maybe my question
brought the pain
back to your mind
I only wanted
to help you through
if you needed me to

I thought you
were a soul friend
the kind
that has no end
but now you're gone
and its just me
through my wishes
analyzing the glitches
for me
there is only
right now
right now
you and I
are disconnected
our energy
was oxytocin
it made me younger
renewed my hunger

Now your scent
fades back into
the flower shop
and I'm hoping
spring will come soon
with many flowers
I won't pick them
maybe I will shine
maybe I will rain
maybe I will breathe deeply
before I walk away


  1. Hi Theron,
    Just stopping by to let you know I have selected you to receive the Versatile Blogger Award, not sure if you've received it before but if you have or are too busy no pressure...

    Should you decide to accept check out this link to follow the purpose of the award

    Have a nice weekend :-)

  2. Superb!!! Fine expression: "and its just me/ skywalking/ through my wishes" & such strong expression: "Now your scent/ fades back into/ the flower shop" The end lines full of emotive strength: "maybe I will shine/ maybe I will rain/ maybe I will breathe deeply/ before I walk away" Lovely write indeed.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Reasonable Words

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
