Vague

Vague dreams I saw last night

Can’t recall what transpired

Searched amongst the shadows

Lost ones the heart desired

Time whisked them out of reach

Looked for them I tried

Noise

What’s happening? The noise inside me. My heart thundering—- the noise deafening.

My eyes blur. I can’t hear anymore, as my head explodes………

Peculiar 

peculiar thing I found this morning. After emptying the contents of Son’s laundry bag into the washer, I went to his bedroom to hang it back inside his closet. I looked at his bed, it wasn’t made. He never makes his bed, guessing his mother will see to it–unable to let her hands rest a bit. I’m irked that he has left all the good habits I instilled in him as a teenager.

Much to my horror I could see a wee lizard sharing his bed. My heart started thumping loudly in my ears. Son must have kept it warm throughout the night with his body heat, keeping it nice and cozy.

Now what to do?

I certainly didn’t want to pick it, but the thing was Son wasn’t at home, and for the next three to four hours I didn’t expect him to be back home. I couldn’t stay by the side of bed, keeping a watch on it till Son’s return. I couldn’t soil the sheet by thumping it with a slipper. There was nothing left but to be brave, and remove it by myself.

I ran to my bathroom to get a glove on my hand, praying all the while it won’t do the disappearing act on me. I grabbed a paper towel, and in one go swooped on the icky thingy, and after dropping him in the bowl, I flushed him away. 

Finally my heartbeat turned normal.

Hesitate 

I hesitate 

To soar to fly

In the vast expanse of the sky

Old fears of falling

Getting hurt

Gnaw at my heart

Pull me back

If only

I could get past them

Flung them far away

I hesitate

Promises

Promise you will love me always

I hope a promise  you won’t break

Promise you will come back to me

Promise that you won’t make me wait

If the promises you make are not true

Into a thousand pieces my heart will break
