The last chance motel

Summer Texas night, cold drink and no-place to go. Michigan dreamer, drinking his Long Island teas and writing into a journal.

“Song of my father,
songs of the long highways,
more goodbye songs than hello.

Pretty memories don’t bring joy no-more,
shallow man broke an angel heart and
he learn.
The Iron Mountain girl was right.
She told him. You will miss me more than today.
My lasting kisses will burn your heart and your soul.
You will wish for me when the night is cold and lonely.”

He watched the pretty Texas girls dance at midnight hours. The midnight hours is when the last people on earth must decide to go home alone or seek a companion to fulfill needs of the skin, needs of the flesh.

Winter’s Child

Don’t Miss Penny’s Beautiful tribute – WINTER’S CHILD

Penny Wilson Writes

The walls are permeated 
with the laughter and tears 
once shared

I fill the room 
as best I can 
with today’s sunlight

I open the window
but the breeze does not 
sweep away the past

A life once lived 
clings tightly

My fingers 
touch a picture frame

Frozen in time 
you cradle a child

I can feel the love 
in the smile on your lips

Your fingers 
brush the hair from my face

Behind my eyelids 
I’m swept away

I am once again that small child

You always 
smelled of lilacs

the memory of your face
is as vivid as yesterday

Other times 
it is but a faded shape in the mist

You are always with me 
a part of me
