You can’t catch me

There was once a guy with dubious street cred
“They could never catch me,” he said
Leaped above bridges, vaulted across the rail
Ten foot walls he used to scale
Until, on a banana peel, he did tread!

I look around the room and the memories come back. Some fondly caressing, some hard hitting – but they are all there – clear as daylight.

The anticipation as we climb higher. The exhilaration looking down from the peek. The funny feeling in the stomach as we go round and round. Giggling like kids, we ride the ferris wheel to celebrate our golden anniversary.

And that little glass ball that shimmers with every touch, like our love, glistening more and more with each passing year.

As if on cue, you pick it up and give it a gentle shake. We smile and the sun peeps out from behind the clouds.

Broken glass

Here I am

Another day
Another night
Another minute
Another second

What does it matter
You are not here with me

I put all my love

In a box
You lost the key

In a letter
You never read it

In a song
You didn’t like the tune

What does it matter now
You will never be here with me
