Who Knew?

"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art

Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?


When is it all going to end?


Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

You See!

Oh! Why?

I wanted to leave, I planned to leave,
I tried to leave, but leave I did not.

Day in and out day only mundane
events, as the clock ticked away and
my space evaporated quickly through
the decades and thus the world passed
me by.

Now here and now, I say unto you!
"Don’t wait to go, don’t wait to do,
don’t wait for time to devour you,
or you will end up just like I…
too old, too tired, too late."

Now all I do is sit and cry,
and asking myself…
Oh! Why,
Oh! Why?

Jackie R. Kays

It’s two AM  and I’ve got that melancholy feeling again…smile.
