Complicated Perfection

Overwhelming machines

a worrisome screen – 

none of us could’ve foreseen

what was to change our routine. 

Everything was so clean – 

stainless with an eerie glean. 

I felt myself growing lean

between hospital cuisine 

and little caffeine. 

All we did was for our little bean,

the pump, medicine, and saline. 

Though the world seemed mean – 

what had gone unseen 

turned out to be our perfect scene.

Simply put, I'm a thirty something single mom of three young boys with a passion for reading and writing. Writing, and reading for that matter, has been a passion since elementary school when a friend and I had our short collection of poetry published through the school where it was on display in the library for an entire year. While I still enjoy poetry, my love has grown into short stories and full length novels. Tag along for the journey, it'll be documented here every step of the way.
