Poetry by Jim: She left us

a month has gone by
she’s still gone a way
not a trace nor a lie
it hurts less everyday

no call, text or knock
not a sound she gave
she left us in shock
when she went a way

empty souls at nightfall
left us three all alone
tears seep before they fall
abandoned to the bone

that was then
forty years ago
no answers again
we still don’t know

  1. Well… I was so young I had no idea what I was doing. I drank and drugged and often needed my moms help or what ever woman was in my life. There were plenty of times where I was truly an unresponsible parent, however I never left and finally stopped the drink and drug, while they were in their preteens. Some kind of way we all made it through.
