it really hurts
i can feel you…everywhere
i wish i could see you…anywhere
I went to the store to buy you a Christmas card
Isn’t that crazy. You’ve been dead for a minute now.
I went to the store and I saw all the things you would like.
I cried at a CD of Chaka Khan. I cried at a book for Top Chef. I cried a cute sweater vest in your size.
emotions are swirling all through my head. they are drowning me.
I’m trying to come up for air
I knew this would happen but i was not prepared for it…fully
I remember all the good years we had to together. All the Christmas holidays.
then i smile again.
I still have people HERE that i need to give attention to
I still have people here to celebrate the holiday with.
I still have people here at Christmas..and some of them miss you too.
We can miss you together. The survivors.
We can love you together.
I want to be someone who is missed when i am gone.
I have to remember whether i am missing them or being with who’s left
Love is filling the room.
Love is filling my heart
Love is lighting my Christmas.
I am writing and writing so much poetry. It is spilling out of me! Some i have changed a bit and turned into songs. I am so proud of the surprise success of my Poetry book It was a labor of my life in 2016. My ups and downs and now I have decided that I will end the year with another poetry book. I am currently picking the poems to be included. This will chronicle my 2017 and its ups and DOWNS! I hope to have it out in December.
This has been a great outlet for me and getting my feelings out! I feel better personally and I hope people who pick up the books feel better too and can relate!
I Work Hard for the Money by James Lott Jr 2017
I work hard for the money!
Actually I work hard for the dream!
Actually I work for the dream!
Actually I work for the dream and hopefully it will make me money!
Money is not the reason I work for the dream.
Money isn’t the dream.
The dream is the dream but I have to make money too.
I can never forget that.
I can never forget the dream.
But I need to find ways for the dream and the money to intersect.
I feels unfair sometimes but then I remember
I’m living the dream.
To be able to dream and to work for it.
I work hard.
But it feels good and not always like work.
I make some money
Somehow I make it work.
I started writing poetry and spoken word pieces and publishing them on here. Now I have a collection of them in Kindle and paperback form! You can go to Amazon.com to purchase!

Green with envy
Green with jealously
The grass is greener on the other side
It ain’t easy been green
I see the pics.
I see the posts
I KNOW its of your best bits
I KNOW it can’t be all good
You must have a job
The kids can’t be that well behaved
How can you be having fun when you are shooting video of yourself the whole time
I still feel bad
What am i NOT doing right
I have bills to pay
I have a house to take care of
I’m single and can’t find a partner
I travel but not THAT much
Why do I care
It all an illusion to make me think they are better
or at least not sad
Green in anger
Green in silence
Green and alone
Its time for some green tea to calm me down
Be open to it.
It’s too unknown
i just can’t
It might be good for you
It might destroy me.
my heart could get borken
my self esteem will go back down
Maybe i’ll like this job
Bye by ego
This person could be the one
Walk through it
this house could be our new sanctuary
Always do it
Maybe its time to have that baby
I will survive
I will thrive
it will work out.
It may not work out
It’s always right on time.
