    Words can not describe
    really, they can't.
    No utterances will suffice,
    no maniacal rave or rant.
    Some questions, better left unanswered
    Some things defy explanation.
    Can't say if it's disgust or shame,
    ire or total indignation.
    But it's there, in the air
    it lies there, so thick
    even a knife won't cut it.
    Frankly it makes me sick.
    And now, here comes May
    I knew you were coming, but da**
    what a time to finally arrive.
    A headliner, not an also ran.
    I used to anticipate this month
    with the warmth of motherhood
    anticipating 2 celebrations.
    But now, I mix the bad with the good
    and come out with a cocktail of maybe.
    A spoonful of sugar won't help this
    bitter pill go down. I keep getting
    choked up cause it tastes like piss.
    I need a cure for this chaos.
    I keep running from crazee
    but it catches me every time.
    So why do I let it phase me?
    Take my hand Lord, and lead
    me through the wilderness of this
    merry
    scary
    month
    of
    May

    Sometimes you have to flow it as you feel it. Thanks Ms. Poet of the Week.

    in this you spoke..."Namaste"
    and this month will pass...
    like gold moving through fire
    you will emerge pure and
    much, much stronger... :wink:
    just wait and see...

    Beatifully, melancholic peace...

    Well, sage, "If it comes easily, it's a flow". Thank you, I sure hope so, many issues to deal with, and keep living life any way.
