My first post to this blog is dedicated to my friend Christine Berry – Born Windsor, Ontario May 31, 1964, died August 18, 2005.
the bastard child of hopelessness and despair
straddles my chest
pinning me to the ground
leaving me breathless
Girl, you had a heart and a half. Gave so much to others you didn’t keep any for yourself.
You never made it out to my lakeside liar. You’ll never know how much I wanted to sit on the beach with you and sip a little Gibson’s. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you. I miss your laugh. I miss your catfish. I carry you in my heart.
