Grey Sweater
-Autumn 2004

She walks
down the neighborhood streets.
Her grey sweater
matching her surroundings.

Her breath of white
exhale of grief
exiting
out from her.

The bottom of her jeans
as well as her shoes
wet from nights of rain
clouds still remain
and block the sun
she hasn’t
finished letting go just yet.

Still, she holds on
sooner or later
something
is going to open up
and let her back in.

She stops
places a hand
on her cheek,
wishing
she had a life
like she once had.
She continues to walk,
and draws
a smile
on her face.

Knowing that
leaves do fall
but never
forever.
