Unified…

Your scent still lingers
on the rose-colored pillow case
you detested…
On your tuxedo shirt and
felted Western hat
 
Breathing deeply…
The memories flood in
And…
I cry
 
Like Cohen wrote…
“… the heart is a rage
of directions…”*
there is no Mercy
 
I refuse to wash
that shirt or pillow case
The only pieces of you
that remain
 
I wear the hat when
the missing becomes 
too much
 
Your scent…
My raging heart
Unified…

*The follow line from Leonard Cohen’s poem #50 The Book of Mercy was my inspiration today.
 
” … the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart …”

*RAGE…

There comes a time
for all of us toward
the end of our time
to decide…
Do we hang on
and fight…rage
 
Or…
 
Do we let go
gracefully…
willingly…
accepting…
what the fates
have in store
the inevitable…
 
My decision is
not clear…
Will I rage at
the end
 
Or…
 
Will I turn my
eyes to the light
and go willingly…
peacefully…
joyfully…
with a smile 
on my face

“… Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Rage Against…

Rage Against
the Dying…
the unfairness…
the injustice…
the blatant actions
against one group
of individuals
Blocked at every turn
 
Nearly 35 years 
later and the fight
continues
Now…
Rage to live…
Rage for equal rights…
Rage to be seen human…
Equal…
 
Able to live..
To love…
To be…
Who they please
without prejudice
 
Continue the
RAGE…
