An Ode To Beans On Toast

Simply delicious beans on toast

One of the meals I love the most

It’s my husbands finest cuisine

He can microwave the beans


and butter toast he makes for me.

No cooking fail it’s so easy.

I bet he feels like a top chef

secretly toasting his success.


Topping my beans with grated cheese

and Worcester sauce my taste buds pleased.

Relishing the tomato sauce

on soggy toast I must endorse


this meal that’s cheap and quick to make,

easy if you can’t cook or bake.

My husband’s pleased, really thrilled

He’s made a meal that hasn’t killed.

Now You Are A Ghost 

We used to be so close

but now you are a ghost.

Someone I hardly see.

You keep on hurting me.


Interested in yourself

I feel that I am shelved

in convenience for you

picked up when you want to


divulge all of your stress

and your unhappiness.

Never ask how I am,

don’t really give a damn.


Your ego always shuns.

I love you but I’m done.

Won’t beg for attention

I’ll take your rejection.

The problem is I’m tired

I’m tired of your game.

I’m tired of hurting

and always being blamed.


Im tired of you treading

on my soul and heart.

I’m tired of my feelings

being torn apart.


Im tired of loving

you don’t appreciate.

My whole spirit’s giving

and you just give me hate


Tiny little pinpricks

of your mental abuse,

over time have scarred me

your love is just a ruse.

Time For A Change 

When you love somebody dearly

but the relationship’s estranged,

and you feel taken for granted

maybe it is time for a change.


Alter your own expectations

and take people for who they are.

You know nobody is perfect

and perhaps your opinion’s marred


by idealist perceptions

of what your connection should be.

it could be your own attitude

that’s causing all the misery.


Even true love wanes with pressure,

give your heart time to beat alone

Leave your trusted soul air to breathe

because a person’s never owned.

We Should Be Thankful 

We should be thankful for 

the people that used us,

and the narcissists who

have hurt and abused us.


We should give praise to

the traumas that were ailed,

it taught us to be brave

when our hearts were frail.


Yes we should feel happy

looking back on dark days

as they’ve made us stronger

forever and always


appreciate life let

negativity go

because that is the way

your happiness will grow.

Harvest Moon 

The clouds are iridescent

in love with the moon tonight.

The stratosphere’s glowing in

it’s celestial delight.


Crescent illuminations

enlighten wisp nebula.

In darkness it’s a cosmic

orange orb of plethora.


The twilight lies with passion

as the heavens float on by.

The lunar cast enchantment

Is embedded in the skies.


Hearts are bound in fluorescence,

and the night will harvest love.

Embracing moonlight dreamers

in their sanctity of lust.

Ghost Love 

You came to me in reverie

my love. A cherished memory,

I’ve visited your grave virtually

and last night you were here with me.


In my slumber resurrected,

with your presence. I’m protected

from my worries my spirit love

with your guidance from above.


You walked beside me for a while,

it was heavenly to see your smile.

Our hearts once more in dalliance

in your ghostly tarriance.


In the morning when I woke,

I thought of you and my heart broke.

For though you are long gone from me,

true love lasts for eternity.
