To Roy

You left me one late summer day
and fell down on the floor.

The EMS carted you away,
and I had to sign the papers,
to take you off of life support.

Did you leave your estate in such
as mess because you thought you
would never die?

You never came back to help me,
not even the day I yelled
“Roy, where are the wire nuts.”

My friend says her dead husband
comes back to help her.

You never came back.

Death is Stalking my Aunt

Mr. Death is after Aunt Mary,
she has the evil cancer.

I love my aunt,
and wish this wasn’t true.

Lady has lived a good long life,
but I don’t want it to be her time.

Mary is a feisty lady,
and hope it will be enough
to get her through.

She became part of the
widow’s club, a few years ago.
A group many of us
have to be part of when
the love of our life
is taken by Mr. Death.

Mary is a feisty lady
and will argue with
Mr. Death.

Feed your cats before bedtime

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I hope my cats won’t eat me.

Cooking for an Ex

What if you came over for dinner and I cooked your favorite dish?

You sat there grinning eating the food and drinking the wine.

You asked to take home a container of the food.

You wanted to toss me into bed, but I said no.

When you got sick the next day, did you think you should leave me alone?

The Boogeyman

Trapped with boogeyman on top of  me.

He clanked his chains and then started pounding on me.

He changed his tune to creepy sounds.

He went back to chains ringing in my ears.

He then tried to play a song, but it was just pounding, pounding, pounding.

Trapped with boogeyman on top of me.

‘Twas just an MRI, but boogeyman was crashing and clanking in my dreams for days.

Trapped in my dreams with the boogeyman on top of me.


zombie, and
in the back yard at night.

Sometimes wind is blowing
and I can hear wind chimes in the backyard.
Is it really the wind or something else?

Normal creaking sounds in house,
is it the boogeyman,
a cat,
or what?
