Cantankerous Crazies

FOWC with Fandango — Cantankerous

This post is somewhat tongue-in-cheek…NO disrespect is meant to people with mental illness.  Since I’m a “crazy”, I write of times when my mood/thought disorder is disabling, and days when I have to laugh about it.  My long-time neighbor once said, “but you have a good heart”…I’m grateful he could speak gracious truth 🙂

Countless consider me

Cantankerous

There’s another side…but

Beware

Best to allow wide berth…

Crazy people are unpredictable, yes…we’re often good-hearted, too 🙂

Retirement’s Long Hours

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/04/03/three-things-challenge-pl49/

Prompt: midnight, sweatshirt, application

I wake at midnight

Aware husband’s not in bed

Follow kitchen’s glow

In sweatshirt, at table he’s

Writing job application

Reassures my frown:

No money worries…hours of

Retirement too long.

One Liner Wednesday…Good Fences, Neighbors

One-Liner Wednesday – Will Ferguson – you should read his books

“Good fences make good neighbors…except when you have to climb over fence to get to neighbor.”

Thank God for the Internet…without it I wouldn’t have “neighbors” who make themselves accessible, and invite me to visit 🙂

10 Long Years, Not Enough

https://thehauntedwordsmith.wordpress.com/2019/03/26/story-starter-challenge-24/

Prompt: “Ten long years.”

My neighbor moved away, after

Living Ten Long Years in Apt 8…

Except, as he was packing and I

Was wiping away shocked tears, it

Didn’t seem like a long time at all.

We had an on-and-off relationship

Better than most friends, neighbors.

I disagreed with his politics, spiritual

Beliefs, and what seemed to me his

Contradictory principles.  And his

Arrogant, egocentric, self-aggrandizing

“All about him” focus drove me nuts

Most days…but we had a similar sense

Of humor and level of intelligence, with

Ability to communicate fairly well. 

A lot of the same things bugged the

Heck out of both of us—there were

Plenty external issues to trigger rants.

Sometimes he was a real butt-head…

Others, he could be generous, helpful

And he was a good listener when he

Wasn’t talking about himself.

I’m no saint…he said I could be a “handful”.

There was no “attraction” to each

Other, the kind that can mess up

A friendship…and he’d eat literally

Anything I cooked, a boon to this

Compulsive cook.

I assumed he’d live here forever…

That we’d grow old together, me

Upstairs…him, in the apartment below.

Our favorite saying was that something/

Someone was taking, or had taken

“Forever and a day”…to which the

Respondent would add, “it’s that

Day following that does you in”.

Ten years, learning to know and

Tolerate each other…of respect…

Cold silences…comfortable

Familiarity, like old shoes.  Ten years

Wasn’t long…not long enough.

Ryan’s Ladder

What do you See? March 19/2019

“Look up here, Love!

Yes, it’s me…I promised

I’d come back to you.

You’re a vision to behold

I  missed you so.

I know, I know…gone a very

Long time…but Today’s

The beginning of Forever…

We’ll not be separated now.

Aren’t the colors spectacular?

More vibrant than I’d dreamed

And painted, passing afternoons.

Much to tell each other, yes…

I long to wrap you in my arms

Won’t let you slip, I’ll kiss you

Till you’re breathless, recapture

Years withheld from us as we

Waited…lives and times apart…

Swift-spinning world below.

Hey, have you met van Gogh?

I caught a glimpse of him

Walking, just a minute ago…

Do I smell cinnamon rolls?

You must be working in the

Kitchen, as you’d hoped.

My, I can’t get over the sky

A-swirl…remember, we used

To marvel, evenings…it’s oh

Far More.  We can reach out

Here, actually touch the sparkle

Wafting tingly…and the breeze

Is like it was in the islands!

Remarkable! my mind clear again.

But, Love, tell me one small thing…

Is there a ladder on your side…for you?”

What Shall We Do, Dear?

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/20/your-daily-word-prompt-hither-march-20-2019/

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/03/19/three-things-challenge-pl34/ Today’s prompt: guitar, forest, caviar

Doubt I’d care for caviar

Perhaps pizza, I’ve cash to spare

Forest get-away sounds too far…

Let’s do stay-cation, shall we dare?

You can play “come-hitherguitar

We’ll turn off phone, enjoy lovers’ lair.
