Quiet Dreams by SerenAletheia Quiet Dreams :iconserenaletheia:SerenAletheia 5 0
Literature
Brewskies
I know they partied
had an extra couple to celebrate
when you stare at me
through my phone
and you see the pain
you have caused
my downfall.
Yeah savor the words,
I am sure.
There was this dude
2000 years ago or so
He was a brother.
He climbed mountains
loved children
and helped everyone
He could.
They killed Him.
He didn't stay dead.
And His resurrection
and life everlasting, well
keep drinking
and telling yourself
you won.

Literature
The Silver Key

silver and diamond
bracelets
she loved everything shiny
the first key
sparkled brightly with diamonds
and hung neatly
on a silver chain.
resurrected
but not her
just her things.
Gone she is, and not missed.
I am awash in
someone else's property.
I have added my own things
to the collection
will it now go up in smoke?
who gets attached to their possessions?
oh
everyone
I am going to pack my bags
and go
just the necessities
sell or give away the rest.
But I too
like shiny things
silver and diamond bracelets
and a key
with no lock.

Payment Due
So hello death, old friend.
I thought I had cheated you.
New creation
And a shiny new halo.
The sky is the limit
and
I will live forever.
I will see my nieces and nephews
Have their own children
And be a great aunt.
I will be a wacky old lady
Dispensing wisdom and chewing gum.
Then you tapped me
On the shoulder with a
Bony finger
You looked dashing
In your bowler hat and bowtie.
Handed me a bill: payment due.
We have worked out
an arrangement.
You may bide your time
Or perhaps not.
Today I remembered
we all die.
Bury me under
some mint
please.

Literature
Dust
the dust
settles
a thin layer of grey
draped like a shroud
decorated with spiders
tiny eight legged jewels
doing arabesques
high above
the dust
this is the condition
of things uncared for
unloved and abandoned.
We asked for many things
From the Lord of hosts.
We did not expect
These answers.

On Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve! Decorations, cards, freshly baked cookies. Tomorrow we have a family dinner and will gather round. Christmas carols are playing in my headphones. Snow sparkles on the ground, lit by the Christmas lights. Everything seems perfect.
My husband gets off work soon. He works for a nurse line, so he is working today and tomorrow, Christmas Day. People don't stop getting sick over the holidays, so he is needed. He will come home, and we will laugh over YouTube videos and what the latest Star Wars news is. He will sing to me off key about cats, and I will giggle at his bad jokes. 
He brought home an ornament from a gift exchange at work. I looked at it, said, "It's broke."
"What?"
"It's broken." He had been careless bringing it home, and the top of the tiny Eiffel tower had come loose, along with a corner that cracked off. I took it out of the small gift bag in all its pink, sparkly glory. He took it from me and set it firmly on a sh

Literature
Frozen Heart
on a one night stand
it was wicked cold
sparkles of snow
and breathy mist
it moved
I saw it
it moved
my heart that is
buried underneath
all the snow
things that once seemed
sharp, now dull
whispering voices
quiet to sleep
sleep sleep
the siren song, a lullaby.
surgeons do stuff
while you're asleep
like dissect you.
I searched for my heart
in the winter night
I called its name
I dug deep
Silence and frost kissed lashes
tears like a kaleidoscope
so I gave it to God
because the One who created snow
knows how to melt it
and my heart
also.

So I made this new journal skin because I was feeling blue, and it was relaxing and made me feel better. It always amazes me how helpful art can be.

My MIL made a great dinner tonight: steak and potatoes, except I have never had such good steak and potatoes. Just WOW.

I have problems but they are solvable. I have stuff going on but none of it will kill me.

It's OK to fail. I keep telling myself that. :)

GOOD NEWS. NOT DYING. Dx was for coding purposes. Other stuff is wrong and still likely to end up in assisted living, but not dying is GOOD. 😊😊😊
