i remember now

i remember now 1.6.15
what happened to the young man
who mailed me love letters
in green ink?

who is this old man
who only writes in black
and makes promises
he has no intention to keep?

near twenty years of dancing
to a dizzy rhythm i can’t hold

i remember now
why i kept closing that door
better to waste away
of my own accord
than to listen to those lies
from lips that know no compromise

i didn’t know then
how high was the price
for another woman’s sin
i am sorry for your agony
but she is not me

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
