Sitting in our garden then
After our first winter
So furious with cold young storms
You told me in a quiet way
That after all that it wasn’t you:
I was the one sliding helplessly
Out of this universe.
You squinted in the sunlight
In the mayhem of your love & peeled
Skin from around your nails until
It’s no joke being the butt of Moira’s joke.
I’m not a Greek but I’ve learned to live a life of a geek
In this cosmos of myth and reality who would agree?
The universe is shallow, too small for someone like me.
Looking at this picture, I envy these children’s smiles in spite of their saddening and difficult situation selling vegetables from one house to another instead of playing with other kids and enjoying their childhood days. If my LTM served me just right, I took it last 2006 in our old house that was already sold a couple of years ago. If you feel burdened and anxious today, I hope this photo will make you realize how lucky you are! Don’t you have more reasons to smile about? :)
I can never trust anyone else the way I trusted my mother. Since she passed away, there are those who pretend to be second mothers to me but secretly hate me probably out of envy so they offered me poisoned apples. Little do they know that I consider them rotten tomatoes in my basket that I should get rid of. They should smell each other and realize how they stink terribly rather than see themselves in the mirror to know who is the fairest.
