    Stronger Than Cancer, Bob

    I felt different, a little tired
    worn out, ill here and there
    visit the Doctor, did some test
    took some picture, waited for the results
    A spot in me started small, got bigger
    Time will tell, not a good sign
    here came the shock
    the bad word no one wants
    but I take it stride cause i can beat it.
    I am strong, I have will, the power to go on
    my new slogan Stronger Than Cancer
    no one will beat me down
    I will grow old, see my boys grow
    see them wed, see their kids
    I will not give, , no matter when
    Stronger Than Cancer
    hope will rally, cures to be found
    Meds to take, no fakes
    I will survive, fight for life
    pain will never go, mind so strong
    prays needed, prayers answered
    the fight never ends, I will not bend
    till the end. I am Stronger Than Cancer
    Thanks Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Mother
    for the love of me.I will survive
    Strong Than Cancer, Bob

    poet. He was one of the main figures of the second generation of romantic poets along with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, despite his work only having been in publication for four years before his death.

    Although his poems were not generally well received by critics during his life, his reputation grew after his death, so that by the end of the 19th century he had become one of the most beloved of all English poets. He had a significant influence on a diverse range of later poets and writers. Jorge Luis Borges

    I write, but it will never be
    As beautiful as a pond, cloud, or tree
    Men can make wine with the aid of a grape
    Honey is produced by a bee
    Mother nature molds the elegance of flower
    Poems are made by fools like you and me

    So broken…
    Used as a ‘token’, to manipulate…
    Where was my better judgment to see my fate?

    He chose me…
    Did I fit the mold of ‘easy target’
    when I shared my difficult journey with him when we met?

    His smile won me…
    The laughter in his eyes pulled me in
    I’m certain he knew quite quickly that he’d win!

    His tenderness filled me…
    With just a touch, a hug, a kiss, I felt complete
    Why, God…were he and I so very destined to meet?

    His sarcasm hurt me…
    It started as little ‘drips’ splashing in my head
    But the droplets became full flow with all he said.

    His tactics ‘trapped’ me…
    His “I’m sorry” or “I’m just joking” became the norm
    Yet as I cracked, I CHOSE to stay and began to take new form.

    His wounds left scars…
    Each burning deeper as my life began to burn
    And soon his sister and his mother took their turn.

    He made excuses…
    All blame on me, it was my fault most times, you see…
    because I was the one with so much insecurity.

    He changed my mindset…
    Somehow I loved this man with everything I am
    Catering to his needs, not knowing it was a sham

    He took my power…
    With his web of lies and manipulative train of thought
    I believe he never felt he would get caught.

    He was unfaithful…
    Not once, not twice, but more times than I could bear
    Oh, God….why did I stay with him and give him my love and care?

    He said, “I’m sorry”…
    Every time and showed a face of true remorse
    Yet in time, his infidelities and lies were back on course.

    He really loves me…
    In the only way his heart is able to love
    But 7 years later, it was my PAIN that rose above

    He wanted to change…
    But this was after years of deception we called our life
    And yet so damaged, I stayed true to being his loyal wife.

    He was too late…
    The damage to my soul was already done
    His smiles at me no longer meant cherished fun.

    He pushed me away…
    It was so hard to gain the strength to finally leave
    But I am strong, despite what my husband does believe.

    He cried and pleaded…
    And I joined him in our tearful fate
    Wavering still in my decision, knowing in my heart, he was just too late

    He let me go…
    Yet I refused to cut him off so I could heal
    I feared THE END of us would be the last emotion I’d ever feel

    He kept on ‘dripping’…
    Knowing just the words and tears to break me down
    and EVERY TIME I had withdrawals and came around.

    He changed my life…
    In such a painful, sad and wrongful kind of way
    And now I’m broken…my eyes have turned from sparkling blue to dreary gray.

    He is my husband…
    I’ve loved him from the moment that we met
    and in the end, I refuse to live a life filled with regret.

    He’s lost a treasure…
    A heart that NEVER waivered or denied
    a dedicated wife who continued to show pride.

    He has no clue…
    Just how painfully sad our lives will now be
    each other’s laughter, now replaced with misery.

    He wants to start over…
    He swears he has become a new and better man
    But I am broken and just not sure what my heart can still withstand

    So very broken…
    Although our demise has truly shattered my good heart
    It’s now my time to heal and have a brand new start.

    Silence they say is golden and quite glittery
    All it ever brings is pain and total misery
    Everyone wants to be proved right
    But none wants to be left out in love
    A fresco of wasted dreams
    A collage of aspirations cast in streams

    Silence I hear is golden yet so deafening
    I try to speak it’s always a squabbling
    Really scared to disturb the peace
    Tried to piece back one good piece
    It was only a wink in the dark
    The pendulum did not swing back
    Watched love in profile take a dive
    Settled with the ripples of lies and unlusty lives

    Silence I see is golden and so so dazzling
    Autumn’s child came cool and strong
    A blink all green in me was gone
    Oh! The peals of heart break and it stings
    If I could detach my manhood and cry for a moment
    If I could reach back and erase that moment
    I walked up and said “how do you do”

    Twice I loved thrice she lied
    Can this justify my disposition?
    Kindly lace my Valium with deprivian
    Kindly deprive me of this oblivion
    So I could wake up to you
    Lay what is left on you
    Time tells if these would all come true.
