Help Me, For I Am Dreaming

Sarah Doughty

“I can’t help but dream of the day,
the day we become one again.”

It’s winter again, and I’m reminded of how you used to hold me in the night. When the air was too cold, but your body heat was enough to keep me from shivering. I cling to your scent, not wanting it to disappear. But I’m still here, under the same sheets, and I’m beginning to feel the ghost of your touch fade from my memories. I’m still here, and yet I’m beginning to panic. The thought of forgetting your scent haunts me, because there isn’t anything left of us but memories….

A Cliched Rambling

we lost track of time,
smooth sailing
or so we thought…
the quiet before the storm
that muddied the waters

they say that time heals all wounds
but I’m not so sure,
time is more a sticky band-aid
that lessens the pain
but only time will tell

for the writing on the wall,
denotes happily ever after
dead in the water

Too Late ~A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

I stand before you
A Poet
All former glory now gone
Nothing left but my pride
I once had it all
But no longer
Nothing is left
Just memories
Of another time
I still write when my health allows it
Life was so easy then
Before the fall
I created images with words
Nothing fancy
Just raw, unadorned thoughts
Formed into poetry
Or something close to it
I want my health back
I want my life back
I want our love back
But it may be too late
