My Sollitude

(This one is from my 2013 archive)

     Sitting here in this place known as home
On the brink of tears, at the edge of my seat reflecting on the horror film of my day
     Cold and dark, the temperature continues to fall
I prevent my anger from boiling over like the sticky oatmeal in the A.M.
     Surrounded by vultures, ready to swarm as if death is near
     Wet and damp are my thoughts, like that of an un-rung
mop-
 drip, drip, dripping away
     The ecru tiles evenly displayed by the dozens
One after another surrounding, robbing me mentally 
     Finally, that time of the day to vacation, wherever I choose
Far, far away from the five-car pile-up of my life
     No fatalities, only fender benders yet the escape is heavenly
I submerge into the cloak of lavender scented bubbles
     Soak, soak soaking in the aroma of my nest

    1. I literally just jumped out of bed while watching the Spiderman movies to inspect a loud noise I heard. A tree fell in the parking lot outside my window. Thankfully it didn’t fall in my window or on any cars.
      Happy New Year Ab!
