Forget Never

December 22, 2017

Forget

No, I cannot forget. This is such an important day. You were born on this date many years ago. I loved you. I understood you even though it was often hard to do so. I learned about your hard life as a child. I learned that you had had to put up with countless things. I imagined how it must have been for you, a young woman alone in the world of the 1940s. It is all over. You are safe with the person you loved and missed for over 50 years. You are with her in Heaven.

If you Only Knew

December 22, 2017

If You Only Knew

You don’t know, do you? You don’t want to know. I’ve been with you through thick and thin. I’ve seen you at your worst. I’ve seen you when no one else wanted to see you. You do not want to see me. You don’t see my problems, my struggles, the things I have had to put up with to survive. Your life is rough, so is mine. Your life sucks right now. Mine does too.

 

 

 

 

 

Intimacy

Intimacy

You bitch! You are only with me when it’s convenient for you. You bitch! You don’t care about me! You only care about you. Get out! Take a walk! He went on and on while his listener sat near him with her heart broken to bits. He doesn’t mean it. He can’t be meaning it, she thought. This isn’t happening. If it is, it is not happening here, it is not  happening to us. His voice grew louder. She got up and walked away.

Words

Words

Words—I want them to mean something. I want the words, my words, to be heard and listened to. Words—they are such important words. I utter words of hope and longing and love lost and never found again. I utter words that I had trapped inside me. They had to come out; they had to be expressed. I don’t know what I would do without words, my words.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Push

December 11, 2017

The Push

The man stood in his hospital gown. Is this the suitcase you wanted? She asked him. The stuff that you asked for is inside. No, he answered. I WANT THE BLACK ONE! The black one was too big for me to carry on the subway. I WANT THE BLACK ONE! Well, you can come to the apt. to get it anytime you want. I WANT IT NOW! I am sorry. Did you bring a coat? There is a coat in there, she told him. Look and you will see a coat. I don’t want that one, whatever it is. I WANT THE ONE YOU ARE WEARING. But it’s cold outside. His smile was grim before he answered her. Yes, and I am going to be outside to feel it. He walked towards her and started to unzipped her coat. No! No! She managed to say. His hands were hard; she fell on the ground. Help! Help! Someone opened the door of the hospital room. What happened? A couple of nurses helped her up. Security was called. They said she had been assaulted.
