The Woman who Writes

Maybe
She would find herself
Sitting on the wooden floor
Hands grabbing knees
Crying over
What used to be

The kids
The car
The money
The dreams

….Love.

She would mourn her losses
As a child would
Not quite understanding
The pain she felt
Licking her wounds
Picking at her scabs

Continuously
Obsessively

Pick, pick, pick

Picking at blood
And whatever is left exposed
And still pumping
Involuntarily

Maybe

Still withdrawn
And painfully alone
She would hide in the corner
Of whatever hole she made

Her haven
Sanctuary

Papers
And cryptic words

Finding the rhythmic verses
Soothing prose
Her own poetic lullaby

The Woman who Writes
