SEE NO EVIL

SEE NO EVIL

A wingèd shadow dark
hovers not far
waiting for me to fall
and take my very soul.
But I've seen evil before.
I hold myself in the Light
to fight
the darkness of despair
lest I lose all that I am

the optimism that you show in the last lines. Most of us have a fear of being led into the dark. Witness the theme of Star Wars, which resonated with so many people that it became one of the biggest movies ever. I have no fear that you will be tempted into the Darkside. Nice to see you writing. ~ Gee

Thanks, Geez. This post was an effort to write again, But I am not ready to offer anything worth while yet, An experiment that failed,

Who knows? I may decide to write just not to write not to be read, My mind needs the ''challenge."" Beats doing crossword puzzles to keep me ""sharp"", :)

It is hard for us here to know that you struggle so.
That you have written is good and we hope that one day soon you will find some words floating about that you can capture for us,
You do walk in the light dear friend the darkness that you talk of doesn't belong to you,
Yours as always, Ian and the Children

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

"Wings, A shadow dark hove's too
awaiting me to fall
and
swoop my Only soul!
But I've been Evil before

And I hold onto the Light;
This fight!
Darknesses despair
Lest I Lose
and be yea them
...

a lot of it comes from graphic novels.
a simplistic flow of words from one word
pane to another..
Tin tin and so many others..
Comix..Heavy Metal....Telegraph here from Hamilton
whom had the greats..Al Capp..Lil Abner...Snoopy

I remember my roman catholic friends whom showed
me the childhood chapbooks of instruction
I cleaned a catholic church one..vacumed...swept
mopped....the fan duster for the plaster saints in
the balcony seating...sadly it closed two years
later due to failing congregation numbers
It is a Business.....

unlike scouts....unlike guides.....unlike univercity's
and subways.....

Mr Geremia

I have instructed at a car crash the dumbfounded
stander arounders into action
My fam worked crews ..cannot say more..
Mums the word....

If I was near..I would trundle you about in
a wheelchair going soft over the sidewalk
curb edging....As I have done with my
hardcore compatriot during my pysch overdose
stay......

yes...I am tortured and yes I live the poets
life....

and yes I know who bach is and fuge d major
and Rachmaninov
Billy Holliday
and Blak Russians cost fifteen dollars now...

You Are Very Relevant!
must we peer into your eyes with an led
light and enquire of your brilliance?
(as they did mine of late)

hah....

You crack me up!
I raise a toast to your clever mind

ho Geremia!

thank YOU!

And toast to you,, my dear friend,

Wow
and now with your inner strength
your body will by itself,
repair

My strength is waning as is my will.

WILL is the gas for the human mind

Yes...if you have control of what's killing you.

YES but of course
In 1998
specialists gave me
just 6 months
no less no more

I looked inside my mind
and am I alive

2014

you all had to read me
am I an Apparition
a GHOST !
search me

I still am alive
OR
am I?
loved to lovedly
rebirth may be

We are all so fortunate to have you with us!
