Posted by the prisoner's wife On 6:07 PM

i have been trying
to leave you for years. alone
now shoulders heavy

weight like sunrise. far
to go. we opposite. love
harder. in spite of all       things

stay pushing ahead
daily struggling to keep
above hopelessness

we fight for this life
this right to touch fingertips
anew. we grow, old.

(c) me. 2009.

    Aye, just found your blog. Enjoying what I'm reading, but also loving your choice in video/music. Kelis' Kaleidoscope brings back so many great memories.
