You helped me one day
To get my dog back into shape
She needed to eat
Carrots and garlic, you said
At the time my mind was strange
I thought you might have been an angel or something
Since you came out of nowhere
With just the right thing to say
And then we drifted and life happened
Yet you still spoke to me
When you had fiction class in my hallway
So down in blues and sad
You found me sitting alone
On a bench in the fading light
Before I had to go to my night class
We spoke again but this time I let you into my world
Pain is what I’ve felt for a long while
As icy needles
have pricked my emotions and worn them so thin
Emotional as I have been
I have found myself left in knots
Tangles like those you combed out of my hair
Your eyes are so blue and I have lost myself in their hue
Like a cliché romance
I find I really like you
And how you listen to what I have to say
It’s been a while since I had such respect
And it’s hard to realize that
Because of the level of denial and self-inflicted
Guilt I have been fed
But I am happy now
Since you dropped into my world
Your big smile and straight teeth and warm hands and regard
Is it too much to say that I felt as if I’ve died all ready this past year
And now I am revived because I am done feeling bad
About wanting to be happy again
Author's Notes: Getting my life back on track; this poem is about one of my motivations... that chose never to call me back. *lol* Go figure. On to greener, better, more healthy pastures. *sigh*
