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.
