Brain Pain (Limerick)

What can be said about this old gray brain?

Mystery, oft’ silly…but I mustn’t disdain.

It wasn’t the keenest way back in my youth—

Jumble-tumbled with romance…now, there’s rosy truth.

That’s long-past mirage—today, thinking’s a pain😉

To Dream, Perchance In Peace

Dreaming frenziedly 

Mind rarely permitted rest

Thoughts kaleidoscope

Sleep-carousel’s ceaseless ride

Wild nights e’er uninvited

~

Where is the romance

Why horrifying spiders

Faces of abuse

And that one recurrent theme

Dusk’s unfamiliar streets…lost

~

Wake to dream of peace

Stability’s mere mirage

Quick as nap recedes
