Tit Bits #4

There’s a darkness within us all

waiting for a hidden call

 

It’s always the same

a shame

the blame game

that douse’s our flame

 

I’m a mere man

her glass jar

folds in my hand

released, her radiant star

 

On her wildest course

Mother earth is a true force

she’ll always be stronger

forgive her warranted anger

 

Like her lava flowing into the sea

her stormy green eyes melt me

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. Oh this is #4 in in a series of collections of poetry style comments I’ve written to fellow bloggers/friends about their recent posts. Each of the stanza’s represents a separate comment, and I try to organise the different comments in an order that nearly reads like a complete poem. Haha, hope you understand this mumbo jumbo of mine,…

  1. Not to go all public on you, but I am hoping everything is okay in your life. Sometimes your poems are so sad. I know there is a real reason for your pain, and writing poetry is real therapy. I guess I just worry about you….

    1. Thank you dear Clauda, you warm my heart with your kindness and concern. I’m ok, I don’t mean for my words to be taken too sadly, I’m not sad at all, but like everyone else I have my down moments, and for some inner reason, I’ve this ability to express my feelings simply and plainly, in a way that my readers feel my emotions quite clearly. Please don’t worry, if I’m ever I need ofsome help and guidence I’ll promptly let you know.

      1. So there’s now about ten hours between us. Strange how some nights we cannot sleep and other nights we manage the 8 hours. Have a nap Ibor but not too late in the day. Early afternoon, you might find it helps to break the cycle

      2. Thanks Sue, sounds like a good idea. 😊 I’m off to my Doc’s this morning to get a referral to see my Psychologist, life’s a little bit upsetting for me at the moment and my anxiety levels are high. I’ve not seen her for 5 years, and it’s time I got some help. 😊

      3. My dinner was lovely Deb, my needs are simple. I’m writing poems at the moment, which I enjoy immensely…. I’ve written 3 tonight !!… which is 2 more than I would normally do…… I should be blogging a bit too, but really under these present isolation circumstances, I think it’s important to keep myself happy and comfortable…… blogging responsibilities can take a back step while our systems are coping with our confinements…. especially for us living by ourselves…xxx
