Home Alone Again, #6

I awake

I wonder

Who stole my dreams?

My eyes slowly open

My mind is numb

What day is it?

I cannot move

I bodily ache

Where is the go button?

Another restart

Another lonely affray

How to win or lose a day?

I pluck myself out of bed

I suck in the cool air

Where is my pickup truck?

Routine returns

Stretching exercises

Breakfast and coffee

Heat packs on the back

And my pen begins

Did I write these lines?

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.
