My Latest Follies

          I confide in her
          my latest follies
          it doesn't seem to matter
          that it's ten years
          since she died

Presence #44 (June, 2011)

  1. This one brings tears to my eyes

  2. I wrote this after I realised that I was talking to an old friend, even ten years after her death, and knew I had to get the moment down on paper.
