She Pulled It Away

August 17, 2014
“No,” My mom said

with a dismissing wave.

“It will not happen.”

I lowered my head

as missiles of thunder

shot from around her


“Columbia University,”

I murmured, as rain

dripped around me.

It was so close…

but my mother dragged

the idea away

with a string.

I’ve been a gullible

kitty, toying with the

idea that she’d let

me have my dream.

But once again,

she pulled it away.
