The Gift of Knowing, Part 3

The game of cat and mouse
Was a mystery somehow
For she never understood
The how’s and why’s
If you love me, tell me so
Don’t just come
And then just go
Telling everyone you know
I’m just a friend
When you passed my sheets
That morn
It was lovely and adoring
As you spoke to me in whispers

But for her this game he played
Was a Plague that landed daily
As her thoughts consumed by him
And nothing else

The day came finally
When she asked him
“Tell me please?”
And he told her in an angry tone of voice
“You’re like a clown in which I play,
Waiting on me every day and you still
Don’t understand, I’m not your boy!”

This was it for her you see
As she screamed out angrily
“Leave me! Lest I kill you dead this very night”
As she watched him take his leave,
Mumbling something angrily
She just melted into loneliness and strife
“This isn’t over”
She spoke the words
That led her here
A life absurd
Her thinking clearly
not of one who’s sane
and right
You will love me
This I know
If not for you
I would be null
This day is not the end
But just the start

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
