Single Handed….

A labyrinth of tunnels

No guideposts were to come

No time to venture left or right

Straight towards the light

Now Run…

I stumbled, tripped

and sometimes fell

To give you Heaven

I’d walk through Hell..

This wasn’t some adventure

Never cared about the view

The end had one direction

A better life for you..

I wouldn’t stop

I couldn’t rest

To you, my children

I gave my best…

Misty Mind….

Her memories were fluid

Dripping, slipping grains of yesterday’s

Erratic swells of thought and reason

Ebbed and flowed like the change in season

Unchecked without a warning

Placid skies turn to frantic storming

Each day for her was a walk through dreams

To those who watched

She was torn at the seams…..

Hopeful Inquiry….

Where is the you

I once upon a time knew

The voice I welcomed

The voice I understood

The voice tinged with kindness

….colored by love…?

Imagination and hope

would have me believe…

You’re still there..
