Patience is reflected in one’s ability to live in the moment…
She has moved beyond believing.
that she is not enough.
that he will ever keep his word.
that it’s all her fault.
that her time has come and gone.
She is believing in the possibilities…
to and from work
The in between
to pay the bills
and nothing more
Where is the living?
She’s taken to
in an effort to
feel as if someone
cares enough to
speak to her…
Christened Edna Jean
raised in a three room shack of a home
The oldest of eighteen
with a taste for brandy alexanders and marlboros
One daughter at sixteen
two miscarriages followed by three
A nightclub dancing queen
with raven black hair and chocolate eyes
Irresistible to a line of
men, one after the other, after the other
a heart of stone
formed over the years
a reflection of
his actions and words
no tears slipped
over her cheeks
a sign of
seven days of
forgiveness and wonder
a longing for
the ability to “feel” again
take this heart of stone oh God, and create a heart of flesh…
you fight with silence
the air thick with anger
immersed in clouds of emotion
choking what’s left of our love
A Collection of Madness and Magic
a press for divergent writers fluent in the secret language
