Bio
Fooled around and fell in love 2 girls in their 20s, and an autistic son who is 23 y.o. We have too many pets to count and believe that a sense of humor helps to win the battles that this life presents. I hope to spiel my crazy self onto these pages before the poison peaks. Oh yeah, my husband never stops talking.. "All the lonely people, where do they all come from? All the lonely people, where do they all belong?" The Beatles

I'VE BEEN AWAY

 
She applied her makeup much like a spackler would  make full the cracks in a wall.
An attempt to hide the scars left visible from a painful existence.
Agonizing, empty-eyed grimaces 
arrive on an east wind.
An outstretched arm, like a breaking branch, anRead full post »
 
SAND CASTLE
 
 
 
The captain's wife awaits
Still no sighting of the  bow
A widow's watch she stakes?
As the harbor's waters howl
 
Too long has she stood fast,
 Three winters come and gone.
Her faith has long gone pastRead full post »

Erotic Haiku-Open Call

 
 

Flickering tongues taste

                            Betrayal...steaming and spent.

I recently read a comment about blogs, questioning how true the ratings and comments are. It brought to mind the thoughts I had when I first started posting on OS. I believed that the comments were exaggerated and  ratings were handed out like candy on Halloween.

MY AMPUTATION

AMPUTATION
My anger is gangrenous black,
glinting fevered pain 
from a happiness
that had come and is now gone again.

If my will could bring my star,
her smile could save my world.

"THAT CRACKS MY ASS"

 

 
We have an expression here at the Kiernan household when something is particularly troubling or inappropriate. Say the waitress serving up our food order has big ole juicy coughing fit, spraying me and my fellow diners with germs you can actually see. When relating theRead full post »

My Baby's Gone

 
My daughter has left me.
 
Gone, like an evolving star in the night sky. Her absence leaves  a black hole, a void where there once were  warm embraces and  knowing smiles. 
 
She has found another family, been born of a different mother,Read full post »

OC-MY IDENTITY AWAY FROM OS; AT OS??

 
 
Hiding behind avatar #1, 2, or 3,
I divulge something different
to each person I "meet".
I look much the same as the man down the hall
And this teacher of  Arts will be pregnant next fall
While the Lunch Lady 3 writes better than all.
 
I'm married,Read full post »

Where is the G-D Remote?

 
 
My husband was storming around the living room, tossing pillows from couch to chair, swearing at the cats for their absolute lack of interest in his apparent life altering dilemma. Finally they were dispersed, tails fat with indignation and tufts of fur flying in the trail of their retrRead full post »

My angel is with me
Just silence, and 4 a.m., he sits comforting me. 
 
I miss him at the oddest times;
When a wet snow falls and snowballs are for the tossing,
And I can see him all red cheeked and

There's been other kisses, for sure,
His was not the first.
But what was the difference?
The others had left me empty, feeling more like a chew toy, with no comparison to his.
 
Ohh, the first time my love kissed me, just touching my lips, I felt gentleRead full post »

THE JUNKIE'S PRAYER

 
The dope embalmed me, building
All those years between my self and my sanity.
Much like the mortar sealed the beating heart away in the wall.
There is no escape and reprieve is carried in by lepers who offer up forgiveness with crackers and cheese,Read full post »

WHEN SANITY LETS GO

 
 
On Tuesday, October 19th, the first waves of uncertainty had begun to splash aboard the synapses that drifted aimlessly in the gray matter of my brain. I was shaky as banshees screamed from the unknown, and I could smell the sulphur of the electrical burn.

WHO SAID IT WAS A HALLUCINATION?

 
I know what I saw, and it was as real as the pain that consumed me!
 
I asked for it, really.
 
Calling out  in the night, 
 
'' don't forsake me!"
 
And so you stayed, bringing comfort, singing  amens, alleluiahs, and Sweet Jesus, my Lord,… Read full post »

He hears the language of love.
My autistic son.

The snap of  the noose
friendship falls through gallow's floor,
and I will miss you.
