City Blues – makeshift26 (The Road That Never Ends)

https://makeshift26.wordpress.com/

Daydreams.
Yesterdays.
The dorm. 1st day.
You told me you were proud.
On your own. Stay safe.
Don’t get caught in the moment.
And don’t be afraid.

Yet I cried when you left here, so scared.
I wanted to stand tall and proud,
felt so small in this new town.
Huge city. Brotherly love.
Alone for the first time.
I walked outside, said hello to those walking by, shifting eyes, clutching purses and bags.
Walked into a Wawa.
Said to myself, “I’ve arrived”.

I had so much to discover.
So much to learn.
How I miss you, my brother
the selfless love you shared.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
