Flow...



Sometimes

Standing alone 

Can be difficult

But to go with the flow

Would be unbearable

The Short Of It...



They used to call us lunatics

But now that's not PC

And these days

You're underachieving

If you haven't got an OCD

I can't concentrate


On what my doctor says


'Cos apparently I've got ADHD


And my mind's just a mess


Of  unparallelled stress


Thanks to PTSD, so says he!


Weight's been a bit of a problem


Doc said that was all in my head


As he glared into my eyes


Said your BMI'S fine


Whilst I flushed at my HBP's strength!


And that's when it suddenly hit me


The cause of my problem was plain


After years of frustration


And personal damnation


Abbreviation


Was really to blame!

Ageless...



Young hands

Which once brushed

Against the smoothness

Of your youthful cheek

With such loving grace

Now flutter

With the turbulence

Of times ravages

Towards that same

Tender surface

To find, once there

That despite the

Ruthlessness of ageing

The flawless canvas

Of your gentle beauty

Remains unchanged
