many sides to Rosey

24,384 poems read

Wandering around the place
In sweatpants that barely stayed on
Speaking nonsense with some glimmer of reality
As milk dribbled on the chin

The eyes, empty and without a soul
Words bitterly spoken and dripping with sarcasm
Head hung low, feet shuffling on the floor
Moving among people restlessly

I silently seated you down by me
And asked whether you recognized me
You answered, "Yes" with a sneer
"My mind is OK, but my heart is not"

So angry, yet so lost you were
For a man I deeply loved and cherished
Has gone and disappeared somewhere
Leaving behind a scary ghost of a stranger

I silently followed you around
With a heavy burden on my heart
For I can't seem to find you
And reality had struck me in the face

"Good bye" I sadly said with a hug
And you reached for your coat
"I don't know where home is," you said,
Piercing my heart with arrows

How I hated having to go,
Leaving you in that nursing home
Yet, sooner or later,
You will find your way home...
