Letters to the Lost 9/11/2002
Dear Father, 9/11/2002
I saw a smile today, one I never thought I would see again.
one I haven't seen in way too long, a patch of hair the exact same color as yours
its almost breath taking, that morning you left home a man, my lover, my husband, my best friend, facing up to responsibilities one by one, you walked tall with purpose, and you never knew, I didn't know, no one knew, that morning you left home a man, that day you died my best friend and yes my love a father.
Dear Brother, 9/11/2002
I remember when you used to push me and run away calling me a sissy
each shove a challenge to a game of tag under the oak tree out back
making up the rules as we went along, that day I didn't say goodbye to you
as you walked out the door, because we'd fought, over something I can't

Wildmonky's FIVE words poem: interjection confusion bubbles tree faith
Cold interjection of harsh words
confusion among the last of the bubbles in her champaign
and she cries tears as the leaves fall from the autumn tree
each painful word killing off her faith in love, once again.
As he speaks to her, he fades....
and she slips inside the shell she had shrugged off not long ago
and she pulls up the rubble of the walls she once destroyed
and she sips her champaign and lets him rage on
as she stands, leaving an empty glass, and walks away.
His words losing meaning, his existance becoming a memory
time to close up shop, time to forget, time to make like she knew it was coming.
like it doesn't matter, like it was destined to happen, like it doesn't hurt to
always be left behind, to never be the ONE, to be left alone.
It kills her to always be cold inside, to push everyone away,
to be able to shut things off when they start to hurt, but can she?
or does it just seem she does,
