Mother's Teachings

She looks through black and white lenses
to a kaleidoscope world.
Her wrinkles lines of anguish, 
Liver spots marks of pain.

She traveled London, Paris,
studied Italian renaissance.
Fell in love with a rock star,
born into trust fund wealth.

When I glimpse into her eyes-
(blue-ice of the Mediterranean sea)
There is a look that never leaves me,
A fear I cannot appease…

Her sorrow-
                      seeped deep into her soul. 
A place she will never escape. 
‘Till death comes to her door.

From all her living- a circus ring.
Soil I will never touch- spoiled, forgotten in need.
A relentless depression, erases memories, of a life she lived… 
As if she never lived at all.

               And my brain it rambles…          
                                            “Death it waits in hiding.
                                             Close I feel it watching.
                                             Taunting time is calling me to life’s reality”

The mirror glares back an old woman- 
eyes devoid of light.
I run from dreams not accomplished, 
Unacknowledged fetes.
