Alive? -- Poetry 2011



Kissing death but still alive…
When did her spirit extinguish itself?
Shut down but observing the dance of souls
around her – she held back stuck in limbo.
Bricked up emotions built by event after event…
mortared incidents disconnected her from living.
A shallow protection she could see through;
a maladjusted fate, she relinquished feelings.
Coming to rest in an ice palace residence
due to her self inflicted chilling withdrawal
from an abusive relationship, her son’s accident,
family illnesses, none dealt with properly…
her father’s death stripped her of tears.
Coming closer to her own ending, she
worried about transporting these burdens to
what ever after freezing her soul permanently…
