Running from Reality

I cannot stop running from reality, Being the coward I know I am. But the fact remains to be that one day I will tire and collapse to my knees, my legs bloodied and bruised from its relentless pounding against the bare cement, my eyes swollen and watering from the harsh winds battering them, my […]

Fading Recollection

We sit, you stare at me but see nobody “What a beautiful girl, who are you, dear?” I crack a broken smile: “It’s me, sweet grandma.” You blink bewildered, your thoughts unclear The clock keeps on ticking, never once tiring You feel lost, nothing belongs, all pass from sight Your jigsaw mind slips into oblivion, […]

Alone

Helpless

While flying over a winding mountain road one day, I notice a car moving slowly. Impatiently the driver behind them pulls out of his lane, coming to a bend in the road not seeing clearly around it. An oncoming truck approaches the bend. There is no way to warn the car he will be hit. […]

Mary’s Christmas

Once upon a midnight clear, when the cold, cozy breeze consumed December’s time. There was a child so dear, her lovely hums I hear, like a kid given a hundred dime, Walking along the sidewalk made with bricks, hopping merrily, with an ice bag full of candies in her hand “Hello Mary, you’re up so […]

Maybe Tomorrow

What Survives

What survives a fire? Let me catalogue for you what the flames didn’t steal from me. Her diamond ring (it never quite matched the sparkle in my baby’s eye). Her carbon-fiber skis (a must-have for the St. Moritz crowd, even though she didn’t ski). Her sterling silver tea service (a display item for others to […]
