Memory

Memory
Flooding in from soul
Some good; some not
Confusion surrounds
Feelings not grounded
Close eyes, recenter
Calmness returns
Deeply…breathe
Silence, await another
Memories confused
First flirting, dating
Know each other
Then the move-in
Next is marriage
Your kids move in
Ages eight and ten
Two years add baby
Sometimes bad times
Alcohol abuse daily
Verbal abuse daily
Anger precedes our
Divorce and Florida
Tennessee, daughter
And family present
You in Florida, Missouri
Then move to Tennessee
Cause for confusion
Where do you begin?
Where do I begin, end
More memories here
Some good, some not
I feel panicked again
Close my eyes again
Deep breathe again
Until the next memory
Susan’s Soul…
