Wet and Dry

My eyes are wet, My eyes are dry,
laughs and smiles mingle with distant tunes,
youth is now sitting on the bottom step,
old age grabbing the banister,
over loaded tired joints yearn for sedation 
a kick and punch that smoothes and caresses, 
a guaranteed lift, with a hefty drop,
to the fridge, back at the shop.

Vale House, Hertford

Stu's view May 2013

Vale House set on the the road from Hertford to Bengeo
A large meandering building that in the past has offered support to
people with addictions, a successful stabilisation service giving
hope, the feeling of belonging and achievement to many,
now sitting empty, its self now in much need of care.

The hardest bog I have had to write,
in my profile I jested at the time about
showing a few signs of wear and tear,
well the rust seems now to be visible,
you will need a microscope of some sort
to see it, Cancer, hoping its just a smidgin on
the left side of my prostate,
Still awaiting results of MRI and Bone Scan   
At this stage I'm still not drinking,
hows that ? Well talking to 
supportive family and friends 
also that two year goal.
Now its back to taking one day at a time.

Thanks to everybody for
your support over the last week.

Lots of love from a stronger Stu.

Two Years Dry, its a Birthday

Holding on to this mile stone,
like a foundation, we can carry on
building it, or go down the pub,
the ground works done now,
to finish the job I'm going to need craftsmen
to hold my hand and whack a few screws in 
as times are tuff.

I'm off its time for a tea now.
