Watching my life fracture while lying in 
rose colored sheets...embracing my 
lovers... walking through the kitchen 
with Starbucks every morning. 
Say farewell to the color of the light 
through the windows and lavender drapes 
with ivory walls that took some creative 
flare... all part of me... sofa the dining 
room all old friends who now
 have stayed away too long.

See this lonely shelter so dark, four 
adults to one room...drug addicts and 
homeless men now my peers for a year
as I sort my life out. Dinner in the fly 
infested hall. All my friends and possessions 
lost, what is left is only the fullness of my 
sorrow. I miss my dog... my soul aches 
for the future but  too much fear surrounds me. 
Lost and weary I am alone.
