I saw her yesterday so odd, a bit of lore.

There she was, healthy and aptly lucid.

Determined and mouthing labels in the store.

She had put on weight, excitedly saying

the vitamins are a high score.

 

She was always so rummy you know, the usual face.

A few drinks, the paradisal place. Past

the tragic ascendancy, to places we couldn't go.

Stay out of her way she's lost all control.

 

Always screaming inside, searching for joining.

White lipped and unequaled, disconnected.

She knew she was disappointing.

Neglected and confused, she ran defected.

 

We found her stargazing, gravely ill. She

stayed away from that circuit, the one

she loved so well. Impassioned and scattered

scorched in some private hell.

 

I don't know how to deal with her now,

she's so normal. It gives me a scare.

Janet,
I like this. It reminds me of the memories I have of my oldest son a few years back. I know that I will write about it but, right now I am at a loss of words, when it comes to my son.

transformation of identity and emotive manifestations of being can be quite unsettling when it is what we least expect ... powerfully penned, Janet ...

the realism and reality of this poem is strong and stirred by the images that you put to pen. Very well done indeed.

This one has more of 'her' than anyone would care to know. Except one can't turn away.
