This Changes Everything! — Mitch Teemley

WICKED INSOMNIA

The shades are drawn

It’s dark behind

The windows in my mind

There’s nothing I can do, no more,

It happens all the time

****************

Seeking for the light that’s gone

Alone here in this dark

Searching, but not finding, no,

The smallest of a spark

*****************

Storms, they never whisper

As my demons take their place

Boldly taking jabs at me

It’s reflected on my face

*****************

Maybe there is solace

If I could only get some sleep

It’s hard to see

Through crying eyes

A soul to take or keep

F is for Flanagan…#AtoZChallenge2019

FLANNIGAN

Flanagan was a lady’s man

At least that’s what he thought

Many a time he found himself

With his hand where it should naught

Sophia saw it straight away

With a plan to stop the gaucherie

Flanagan fell for it hook and line

‘Twas the end of his debauchery

THE OLD MAN…#NaPoWriMo2019 Day 4

I once questioned a frail, old man

What made him think he was right?

He looked at me with a twinkle in his eyes

And said, “Well, sleep on it tonight.”

I pondered his words and then my own

What was it he thought would come?

When morning arrived, I conceded the point

For in his words I found wisdom.
