Is It Over?

Is it over?
Your eyes rarely find mine
Across the table we’ve made
Built through years of love
And laughter
And family

Is it over
Never a good morning
Or good night
Reluctant pecks on cheeks
Distant pats on backs
But fine, always…..fine.

Resolved to move forward
Vows made, never broken
Recycled promises

It is over
My old friend
Who once caused me
to hold my breath
Anticipating you close to me

Now barely recognizing my presence

I will stay
For you are all I’ve ever known
All I’ve ever wanted
All there will ever be
For me.

It is over

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:)
