Are we there yet?

Different Roads

“Are we there yet?”
I asked.
“We are on the way
but have more road
in front of us,” you
muttered.

Sensing an underlying
anger in that reply
I turned my attention
the scenery passing
by as our tires at up
mile after mile of
black top highway

Trees …
then fields
Houses …
then buildings
Small towns …
Bigger small towns …
And we continue
South …

I stopped asking
long ago just where
it was we were going
And …
‘Are we there yet?’
flowed through my mind
yet never crossed my
lips again as the sun
began setting to my right

Time for another nap
I decided
Much preferable to the
silent anger coming from
behind the steering wheel

The last thing I remember
is seeing the full moon
through tall pines
And …
then nothingness as
the car plunged over
a deep embankment
landing in water

A final deep sleep
and my last thought
was …
I guess we are here ….

Hiding…

We are all guilty…

Each of us hides behind

something

We mask who we really are

 

Some hide behind

a persona …

a name not our own …

ideas that are deceptions …

 

Sometimes we hide

so much and so often

who we are to others

that we forget ourselves

Between Light and Dark

Between Light and Dark

 

It is said there is a fine line between

love and hate

genius and madness

friendship and strangers

Sometimes it is grey

Sometimes deepest black

The line is there nevertheless

 

It seems my life is in

limbo …

the fine line …

wavering between

grey and black

 

Never knowing how things

will be from one minute

to the next

How people will act…

React…

Life seems to go from

weird to …

weirder to…

weirdest on any

given day

Today has been

one of the weirdest

of all …

 

Perhaps I am not

supposed to understand

to know what the

Universe has planned

 

So…

I will straddle that fine

line and

follow where it may lead

Not questioning…

Not worrying…

Only trying to accept

and go on…

Understanding…

 

So many questions …

Why do we not know …

Why do we not really understand …

Can there be answers …

 

In the words of David Mitchell:

“The healthy can’t understand

the emptied, the broken.”

So how can we …

The emptied …

The broken …

Understand anything at all?

Why?

The age old question

WHY?

Never answered

 

How often do

we ask

WHY?

Never expecting

an answer

Knowing that

we may never

know

WHY?

The Kitchen Table …

4 Comments

The Kitchen Table …

Joe found herself sitting alone

at the kitchen table …

Pondering so many

things that have made

up her life

 

The kitchen was always

the center of everything

during her growing up

Yet…

now it is quiet…

empty…

no one left for sharing…

for loving…

for laughing…

 

How would things

have been different

had it not been for

that one horrible

night twenty years

ago…

The night her

world died…

her life changed

forever…

always…

 

Her hands trembled

and her fingers

traced the lines

along the envelope

flap … pondering

 

Was this letter

some joke …

some metaphysical

trick of the time

space continuum

 

Slowly, she placed

the envelope face

down on the table

and…

nudged it under

the opposite

place mat …

the place mat where

no one sits

yet…nothing has

changed since

that night

 

If she is meant

to read whatever is

inside …

it will be there when

or if…

she decides she has

the strength to

run her right

index finger between

the flap and the

envelop breaking

the seal…

unleashing what

is waiting for her

good … or … evil

After the Fall …

The pain…

Confusion…

Heart aches…

Heart breaks…

Questions – unanswered …

How can it be that everything

is different …

Yet …

Nothing has really changed

Not long ago all seemed lost

Suddenly…

Unbelievable…

Earth shattering…

Loss …

What is truth any more?

One day things are fine…

The next hopeless…

And…

Now …

Fine again as though

nothing at all happened

Nothing was wrong…

Was it a dream?

Life is a series of

Losses…

Falls…

Or so it seems

How do we determine

truth anymore?

How can we ever trust again?

What are we supposed to do?

After

The

Fall …

The Letters…

One day I will have
the courage
One day I will 
take time
One day I will
read that 
stack of letters
I found
Hiding in the
bottom of a
trunk my Mom
had all my life
 
Who are they from?
What were they about?
 
The return addresses
are not familiar
Nor are the names
 
What does this mean?
Did she have a secret life?
 
Oh…
Those letters…
