Lady Lazarus & the Voice of Ratified Reason

I’m totally in love with this piece. ❤

Poetry Out West

“If I had the grace to fall apart respectfully, there would be no need for enlightenment”. JD Butler

He’s using me, I’m using him – both of us working on a palatable means to several ends & everyone’s happy on the dance floor, except me / Lady Lazarus,fully loaded

machinations mimicking my madness & everything I have survived is temporarily erased from my memory / the neglect, the rapes, the con artists & the turning of blind eyes. The violence

of insanity,cleansing the last of my contemptible dirty pieces. A ruse in the end, designed to ratify my plea bargain, still set to drown in a sea of toxic shame, churning

out green bile – something the dogs love to salivate over.


It all sounds so depressing, except for the sun that continues to rise; refracted light beams infiltrating my cracks,

        1. Hello, my lovely lady! ❤ No apologies, I haven't been too good lately at keeping up with my peeps. I'm doing okay, but busier than I'd like to be, lol! Yesterday, I looked after my niece. I usually have her three days a week. She tires me, and she's only four months old. I'd forgotten what it's like to take care of a baby regularly. My own is 21 in May! How are you, Laina? I do hope all is well with you, dear heart. ❤ ❤ ❤

          1. Hiya darlin! 😘. I totally understand 💜. I’m glad you’re doing well! Wow, time flies, doesn’t it? 😳😊. I’ve been doing ok, although I think there might be dark times ahead. We’ve got a sweet elderly kitty whose health is probably not great and I think his time is limited. But other than that we’re doing pretty well. Might be starting a Masters program soon, and I’m getting back on the physical self-care horse 😁. I hope you’re having a lot of fun and making great memories with your niece! She sounds like a rocket – awesome 😁😘💖💖

          2. A Masters, how exciting! Good for you, Laina! ❤ I'm sorry to hear about the poor kitty. I freaking love cats. I saw a stray one outside today and it made me sad because I kept wondering if he had anyone at all who is kind to him. My niece is my special girl. I love her so much. It makes me happy that she smiles when she sees me, and hears my voice. ❤ Now I miss her, lol!

          3. Awww! 💞💞. You warm my heart, girl 😘😘. Everything from your niece to your love for kitties! I freaking love cats, too 💗. They’re utterly amazing, so cool! I’ve always had them in my household, including childhood; always 2 or 3, but I would like 3-4 😁. Do you find that strays are attracted to you? They seem to follow my partner and me lol 😉🌺. Your niece sounds absolutely darling, too! 😍💗
