Grip to Hope

A desire of truth only his pleasant warmth can provide comfort. As I age tears and disquiet are my reward. I'm saddened by reality. I, an old brittle woman has lost sketched from memory, crystal sparks adoring our life all replaced with winter's sleep and loneliness. For I am weak, searching, reaching for what is, really is. Drowning, struggling through the chilly winds with aching darkness. Day after dark day, my home, a sealed coffin; in a bitter resentment detestable world. Crazed, I gaze out at verge of night at the gnarled sky and beyond and grip to hope unwilling to let go. 1/13/2020

I'm not quite ready to let go either Eve. I do not stay entirely at home but I do not like going out in public. Not that I'm afraid, it's just that people are so rude and have no respect. However, that final day is fast approaching and I am not quite ready. Exceptional write, Eve.

you must live in Houston, it seems that they just weren't taught respect or courtesy. It wasn't like this where I use to live. Thank you for the visit my friend
