Unlock Misery

Lucid Lucy … positive you … happier thoughts … no hindsight blues
Can’t erase … can’t undo … eyes forward … smiles ensue
Lady Blue … opposite way … morbid thoughts … thru the day
Worries … frets ‘n stews … feeds … sad … Lady Blue
Patience wane … frustration grows … escalation … caregiver woes
Distractions failed … where’s the key … unlock Blue’s … misery
Wait … protect … no confrontation … acts of kindness in succession
Sometimes sleep … scares her away … awakens … Lucy … hooray!

Hearts’ Key

Seriously? … sigh … again!
Lost from beginning … to end
Daily meals … breakfast ‘n brunch
Forgotten … looking for lunch
Shower day … no way … you say
Tomorrow … come what may!
Clothes … off racks … piles in stacks
Daily chore … fastening back
A challenge … you are … to me
Fading away … with my hearts’ key!

The Key

No way … to know … your thoughts
Pondering … your ways …for naught
Looking … for stuff …to do … for fun
Accepting … NO NEW … from anyone
Arts  and  crafts … away
Nevermore will Mother play
Conversations …gone with you
One sided talks …will do
The  KEY … to …Mother
No mystery …LISTEN
Brings  …harmony!

The Key

Key around my neck

Gives me a calm

I know you’re safe

From yourself …harm.

Dead bolts reversed and the key around my neck, I’M READY FREDDY!
