The Curtains – Written Monday 23rd January 2012 (Aged 36)

The Curtains

you were not a silly woman
like us all,
you made some silly decision
but you had a mind of creativity
and a curious precision
i looked at the curtains
another one of your decisions
tasteful, and in tune
with your bright decoration
and i felt sad
memories rolled over and over
we were only talking about these
when you bought them last october
and you creativity and intelligence
should and could of being put –
to much better use
but emotions can hang loose
and lowly beings
will invade and choose to use
you were not a silly woman
you were so much more
you were a fully rounded character
you were mum, an individual to the core
