Poem Commentary

sometimes i cry when i think about this.......because i think of how some people are alone in the world, have no guide, no one that has love them unconditionally since the moment they were born.....

Mom and Dad

Abandon still, feeling weary, ill.

Was once left,

never sought out,

a soul that lay forgotten.

The stench of sorrow taints the wind,


the scent of memories that lay burnt.

A sun turns the house to saw dust,

fake memories burned to powder.

Picture frames lay on the floor,

shattered, scattered, unlike before;


now holding meaning,

for two faces catch my eye.

Two hands entwined,

a woman, a man, a strange mirror of me,

though I have never seen  them before,


this pair, these people. . . . .

My heart takes a sickening plunge;

a connection is made in my mind.

I love you Mom, Dad.
