Curse


i remember my past,
death gripped last-
escape not so fast
i remember my past!
life drove by fast
and left me aghast-
i remember my past,
death gripped last.

Sometimes you get that feeling, and it's so hard to shake it off.

Very crisp and engaging read -- and a very provocative image... I enjoyed this.

Scary how fast life is rushing by! You captured that feeling here with your short lines!

your words have a frantic tempo to them with an abrupt screech of brakes in the last 'death grip'

Well, another month has gone by and I have been to busy to write. But for good reason, a little over 3 weeks ago Angie and I were honored to take into our family two foster boys. These boys were not strangers to us as we had knew them most of their lives and unfortunately we watched as their family disintegrated two years ago. And then the phone call came from Social Services, they had been in foster care for two years and now needed a new home, most likely permanently. Without hesitation we said of course as we had discussed it many times before and now they are here. Brandon age 14 and Richard age 15. But what leads me to this e-mail is this; Richard had to do a writing project and had to write poems. I already knew he was quite the artist, but after reading his poems I realized he had a talent at it too. So I started a blog for him so that he can showcase his work. I hope to put some of his drawings on next week and also hope that one day he may become comfortable enough with his blog and his talent to post them himself. So if you get a chance, please stop by and checkout his work, it would mean a world to him I believe to notice people reading his poetry. The two poems I Am and Reach are based on the popular video game Halo; if you don't know the game you may not understand their story. You can find his blog at Vahalla. Thanks and hope all is well. :-)

Strong. Haunting. And certainly most relatable.
