I Gave My Grandma a Break Today

My heart breaks
for my grandmother
she is old
she is ill
Her memory is
fading
Along with what
seems to be the
scraps left
of her sanity.
Walking is difficult
eating is difficult
living is difficult.
Though she spires
me with bitter
words full of rancor
I must forgive her
for she knows not
what she says.
My heart breaks
for my grandmother
because I am short
with her.
My temper is hot.
But she knows not
what she says.
She knows not
what she says.
How awful it must
be to watch the line
between reality and
fantasy begin to blur.
I must forgive her
for she knows not
what she says.
My heart breaks
for my grandmother

I Don’t Like Summer

I never liked summer
Because summer means
Free time
Alone time
free time means
Sitting
Waiting
For the reply that will
Never come
because you actually
have a life whereas
mine revolves around
waiting for you
Sitting
Waiting
For you to care like I do
But you never will.
Summers make me
The ultimate dumpee
Because I will always be
Here when you return
Sitting
Waiting
