Silently I creep July 20 2013

Silently I creep

down the crowded corridors of my mind,


toying with the doorknobs of rooms

containing suppressed memories.

I hear them

like an overbooked hotel,


eager to crowd the hallways

in hopes of recognition and validation.

Restlessly I slumber

unwilling to commit, I strain to decipher

reluctant to open a door

recalling malaise,

despair or buried pain

The alarm sounds

silently I face the clock,

 the murmurs fade, and

 I throw back the covers,

 relieved that choice is gone.


A Wife, Mother, Grandmother with tons of experience in the arena called *Life* I love information, and endeavor to utilize it as practically as possible. I have worked as a Healthcare coordinator, HR Manager for over 26 yrs, and still employed (19 +years) as a Property Manager of a large complex (I joke that I’m the mayor of a small city). I have raised 4 children, one of whom (a daughter) ❤️has recently completed suicide,which has changed my life forever. I have 8 lovely grandchildren. I love to write poetry and short stories, cook, explore religious experiences and be in charge of stuff :)
