Two and A Half

Melodee and Aymee at 2 and a half (actually 2 years, 7 months) finally big enough to wear special, pretty jammies given to them by a dear aunt for their birthday. 🙂

Tight Words

 

Somehow, the words

always get

so tight

so

tight.

And

I can’t catch my

Breath.

I can’t see.

I try.

In little lurching steps.

I try to choke it out.

Just choke

On the hard, tight

hot

lump.

Somehow the words

are all

tangled with

tears and

letting

loose with one

unleashes

a

torrent of the other.

Hold back that

burning, choking.

swallow hard that lump.

Grit teeth and grind on.

Grind on.
