Favorite Quote:
Then we would go sleep in our bunk beds, Johnny would always get top bunk, I was afraid of rolling out. Then we grew up.

I miss Savannah, Georgia. I miss that wooden fence. I miss that oak tree and the bunk beds. Johnny and I are older now and much more distant, ever since we left Savannah it hasn't been the same. We grew up too fast. And I wish we could go back. So we could be brothers again.

She waits
At the top of stairs,
Looking up with her cloudy eyes,
Cataracts are setting in.
You call her name, no
Reaction, you startle her.
Fourteen years ago
She was a newborn pup.
Center of attention
Now she is forgotten.
She still waits,
Relying on others
Reminiscent of the past
Brown eyes still staring,
Tail wagging,
She waits.
