MY OFFER

The friendship that I  offered you was a sword that cuts both ways.

Your response is your own business.......so do what you may.

My fantasies and dreams.... are off limits for you. Intimacy and sharing

are privileged not the rule.


And you over there in the corner.....yes, I have seen you over there. 

Did it ever occur to you that I no longer care ? Peering through that lens, you

will never truly live. I became free when I let it all go to forgive.



I remember the comfort of believing that you cared. The pretend man that you

showed me...... and the warmth that we shared. 

We did not fit together. But, instead of being cool, you made fun and demeaned

me. You are adept at being cruel. You will never see me. I offered my true self.

But, I am not willing to die alone waiting for you on a shelf.

TOASTMASTER

Let us raise our glasses to the naive fools who were
Gullible and followed the golden rules.

Although each false and vapid promise never came into fruition,
Here is a toast to You My Friend......for ignoring your intuition.

This is a drink to honor all.....Who for every lame excuse did eagerly Fall.
Blindly hoping that the friend, lover, or child....Would return the unconditional love. And, actually return that desperate phone call.

I raise my glass to all of us who have awakened to reality and Self-Disgust. We will never traverse this road again, When it is ourselves we begin to Trust.

One Day we will look back and ponder this when another tale is told.....We will nod our heads in
deep sympathy at another's worth undersold.

Advice will be given with tears held back.....Hoping to alleviate their pain. A secret sigh of relief escapes because we are now Immune to that Game.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

I have pretty much worked on myself daily since my second divorce. The pathway has been fraught with highs and lows.......and invaluable lessons that are now mine to retain.

I met a kindred spirit in this beautiful lady. She talked to me about dancing and the benefits that she has enjoyed. And nope, she did not wait for the "new year, new me" to start. The dancing has enhanced her life despite raising two children and working a full time job. This is beautiful Ms. M. with her lovely daughters and with partners from the Gypsy Viennese Waltz Routine performed in December 2016.
