Poem: A Weekend

Today we have another heartfelt poem submitted by one of our community members.

Enjoy, comment and/or send in your own prose.

A Weekend

By Cheryl Kempner

 

Sitting standing walking no talking

Sitting standing walking no talking

Sitting standing walking no talking

Where has she gone

Where is she now

She’s here but not

Like a body without a soul

Or a soul without a mind

Sitting gazing … gazing at what?

What does she think?

What does she see?

Is she in there?

Where is she?

What happened to my mother?

 

Sitting standing walking no talking

How much longer will she know my name

How much longer will she know of my existence 

How much longer will she know me

How much longer will she be

Sitting standing walking no talking

The days are long and quiet

The questions are repetitive 

The answers are the same

The stare is empty

She is dazed

The smile is gone

What are you thinking

Are you in there

Sitting standing walking no talking

No laughter 

No conversation

No focus

No comprehension

No memories 

No nothing 

Sitting standing walking no talking
