Storms & Lies

She was there that day,

Waiting for the rain to let up

And let them on their way.

Not only did it refuse to stop,

But all the clouds grew darker,

And the rain grew fierce with rage.

The child gripping at her coat

Tugged at it to get her attention.

She looked down and saw his eyes

Reflecting the stormy sky.

She wonder what she could say

To make him feel at ease,

And thus she uttered an easy lie.

“We’ll be home soon enough”.

And just as those words were said

A fork of lightning lit up over their heads,

The trees shuddered

And so did they.

Pieces

These pieces are the spaces I have saved

For the memories of you,

The memories of me,

A rain of ideas and feelings.

In every memory of every line

And every piece of my fragile mind

I seem to find you.

Just to make sure you’ll stay with me,

I hold onto you like a little child

By cradling you within these words.

But almost always it’s the memories of you

That steadies my hand and helps me

Write what has been written.
