Sometimes pain simply shows up at work unannounced!
Often he is wearing clothes of lovers buried long ago
Often he reminds me of the KS patches on my body
Often she reminds me of partying habits, hearts broken, lost places, and towns
Often pain creeps into my sleep, gently he hugs me
Lost childhood pictures
Lost little Midwestern towns…
“A whole new life awaits you!”
My mother tells me over the phone
It is difficult to keep hope alive Mum! I say
For now, medical bills, attorney fees, broken hope adorns my love chest!
