8/31/2013- Just Weary

My life has always felt on the edge of being too much to bear, but I always bore it. Now, I am feeling too old, too tired, too finally depleted. I claim no ache to be eternal; how weary to forever Be.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.

    I should add the caveat that while I “like” it, it also makes me nervous. And I certainly see it in my mom’s eyes these days.

  2. I wish I had something soothing to say, but I don’t. Give your mom a just because hug.

      Nothing to say. I begin to understand that you can reach a point in your life when you have given it your all and there’s nothing left. Even the things that brought her such joy – books being the biggest of all – fall away and you are left facing your own mortality and accepting that it is time. That is what I see in her eyes and I guess that is a part of the cycle of life.
