THE LAST STRAW

… More stuff from the EARLY days …

=============================================================

THE LAST STRAW

i thought you quit?

one more cigarette …

come,  take my hand!

one last look …

come, let’s go home.

one more drink …

come, let’s settle down.

one more fling …

come, let’s go to bed.

one more episode

of the Late Show,

and I’ll come to bed.

cold sheets, starched,

pillow untouched,

nowhere to be found!

sorry, darling,

i waited for you

one more time

too many.

one more cigarette?

i walked out the door.

one more chance?

no, no more!!!

I am a Southern Belle, through and through. Born and raised in North Alabama, where my family settled in 1808, when the area was still the Mississippi Territory, I come from a line of Planters, Patriots, and Pioneers. They were people who were unafraid to take risks, who said what they believed, and who honored God and their Country. Like my ancestors before me, I have strong values, believing that the Golden Rule is indeed golden. I write as a way to relate and as a release. I hope that my words may inspire, challenge and provoke one to thinking about how extraordinary things can come out of ordinary places, people, and things.
