Poem: Simple

I didn’t but say a few simple words. These were words private to us. Only our ears would hear them. Only our ears mattered in the room. What I had to say didn’t ring true for the others. The meaning didn’t belong to them.… Continue Reading “Poem: Simple”

Poem by Ellen Brenneman

My Journey’s Just Begun Don’t think of me as gone awayMy journey’s just begunLife holds so many facetsThis earth is but oneJust think of me as restingFrom the sorrows and the tearsIn a place of warmth and comfortWhere there are no days and yearsThink… Continue Reading “Poem by Ellen Brenneman”

Poem: I’m Not Bouncing

I’ve never bounced off the walls. I’m not a basketball. I’ve never left marks behind. I clean up after myself. I’ve never been any kind of ball. My bounce was never high. I was old in a young body. I’m not energetic. My force… Continue Reading “Poem: I’m Not Bouncing”

Poem: Choose Your Own Adventure

Five paths before you. Choose your own adventure. All of them are good. All of them have riches. All of them won’t disappoint. Make a wrong choice. The adventure ends soon. All the decisions are bad. All the decisions have consequences. All the decisions… Continue Reading “Poem: Choose Your Own Adventure”

Poem: Blast Radius

Poem: What’s Left to Lose?

They asked me countless times. Two questions each. What’s left to lose? How much else can you gain? I don’t know how to answer them. My honesty has never been my strength. Ask me about my weaknesses. I have much to tell with the… Continue Reading “Poem: What’s Left to Lose?”

Poem: Skeleton

In the deep hole of a circle, there was a head. Not one of us claimed it as our own. Its open mouth with one front tooth didn’t belong to any of us. We waded through empty candy wrappers on the floor. They were… Continue Reading “Poem: Skeleton”

Poem: Limited

Here we are again Long and lost in time Maybe never to see each other This time cackling in that annoying way Not caring about our mood Others can do that for us Here we are together In a different space Minutes apart Not… Continue Reading “Poem: Limited”

Poem: another white hair

another day has passed, in maybe what is another time, adding another wrinkle with another moment gone again, and there must be time to think about the situations, in a little slice of quiet and a little further away from everyone, but when the… Continue Reading “Poem: another white hair”
