I’m Back

I have been away from the internet for a while, since I stopped posting I have been struggling through difficulty, I am now battling Cancer. I can’t figure out how I got old so fast. Where did the time go and just so everyone knows it wasn’t fun. I once believed I could do anything…

I love you most

How do I put into words how you make me feel? I have had an invisible weight on my shoulders, one growing until the size of another person. I have not felt happiness although I have searched for it, only finding moments of happiness and endless nights of sleeplessness. I lay beside you, watching your…

Dear M,

It’s hot in Vegas today and most of the world, global warming at its finest.I have decided to treat this blog as a diary since I have a lot on my mindand should have someplace to vent.This Covid-19 is a nightmare, and so is the rest of the world.We have storms, floods, fires, drought, etc.America…

Still

I cringe as your words sink into my soul. It’s not as though I don’t understand why you did what you did. But it hurts as if someone has ripped my heart open and shattered it into a thousand pieces. I cried myself to sleep and realized you don’t need me. Although you may not…

Stand

As I lay broken and battered a former warrior who has seen more war than one person should. Is this the end? Maybe if I close my eyes the end will come swiftly, just like the hope of freedom once did. I feel nothing, my eyes are so heavy and my mind drifts. Who are you…

The Monster

I saw you as I lay under the bed begging him not to hit you. The bruises on your face the tears in your voice I remember it. Do I blame you for leaving? No, I do not; you stuck in a marriage doomed to failure. You were crying, asking God for help and no one came….

Jasmaine K Amos, I miss you

The last time we saw each other we were fifteen. You had been dating that new guy, Ray was that his name? I was dating a few guys which is what you do when you are sixteen, bored and living on an Island. At this age, you are too young to know what a real…

Gone

If all but a kiss is what is meant for us, I will hold your kiss in my memories until the end of my life.I will feel the crashing and burning of rejection and feel the arms that held me pull away.If it is just once my heart is able to feel again, I will…

Always

I remember your words that still echo in my ears, even if it has been over twenty years. My friend, I know that you did not get the chance to live out your life the way that you had planned. Marriage and children were not in the cards for you, but I want you to…

Soulmates

I have had a few, ones that remain a part of my life no matter how near or how far. Time may come between us, and our faces may change with age, but the love that I  feel and the ease of laughter between us never changes. You have touched my heart in the most intimate…

I’m sitting here near a lake listening to families gather and the sounds of ducks and geese. It’s only 70 degrees, yet the sun is hot and burning through my jeans. I’m watching you sitting beside me. Silently working on your fishing pole. I’m content, relaxed and happy. However, I’m dreading this summer. the Las…

Society

In today’s common society one is allowed little or no remorse. Empathy has become a thing of the past. Respect an illusion which plays tricks on one’s mind. Morality is a joke, in which is no longer shared. Within the absence of human dignity Today’s youth uninspired to achieve the simple task of becoming a…
