Hello friends, hello June. It is hard to believe we are almost halfway through the year. It is flying by!
This is christyb saying, I hope you take time to dust yourself off for summer.
You have dust on your knuckles,
In my dreams.
I am glad,
As your knuckles were not friends with
The glass laid on top of the photo.
You do not rest around my frame anymore.
You have white pebbles in your hair,
As I dream while awake.
I hope the stones infiltrate your mind and
Block out your negative tendencies.
I close my eyes,
Like you closed our intersection, and
Hope you have developed an understanding of
The strength of your hands.
I carry no pity for myself and
Understand that you have no concept of
What it meant to crush your mind into
My sense of self.
The unbalanced scale was built by
Your fist, and
Your fist shattered glass in the bedroom that night.
