Ice and snow
Clings to you
Winter’s cool embrace
Begins to harden
Your once warm heart
But you were born to endure
Blizzards and ice storms
This winter is no different
From the last
Another winter to last
But you shall survive this winter
And so will your heart

A Man Of His Word

Profile picture for user benjmason86

His guts churn something shocking, so he reaches for the pills and washes down a couple with a good clump of spit. The knot loosens, relief flushes. The kitchen sink is clean. Did the dishes last night. Do the dishes and wake up to a clean caravan. New man, new decisions. Sign of things to come. 

The sun chases him over the mattress until one more roll will see him face plant the floor. Been a while since it’s had a mop. Plus, imagine yelling out to the other long termers and asking to help lift him up: all six-four inches and a hundred odd kilos.
