Twisted Reigns

Delusional …stories
Twisted …spawned
Replayed …day after day
Confusion …controlling
Havoc …reigns
Musters reality …away!

Has …To Be

You prowl …checking things out
Looking …for an out …no doubt
Your peers …a bit strange …deranged
You jump a mile …they’re in your way
Suspicions grow …as does the day
Delusions …haunting …you’re  ajar
You have no idea … where you are
Then you say …‘this is not for me ‘
I smile …I frown …has …to be

Mom’s been in the secure unit at the Nursing Center …over a week now .   I’m grateful for the caring staff,  they are sensitive to her needs.  She actually says Hi Sis, glad you’re here.  Awesome.  When I leave, she peers through the small window in the door and waves to me with her fingers, brings me tears every time!

Serious …Play

Take those delusions … throw them far
Bundle … tie them … stuff in a jar
Box …tape …to post …send away
Frustrates  … me  … her …serious play!

Small Talk

Ever ride a horse?
Me? You say!
No …never
Why anyway?

No reason …
Small talk …we do
Amazing …I find
New things …about you!

No delusions …in the way
I take a deep …sigh
No illusions …bar the door
My heart-felt cry!
