Picture (or, Portal to the Past)

A Poem By little woman // 12/26/2012

picture from so long ago
remembering that day
waiting in anticipation
for the girl who had been
a best friend
now what was she?
I missed her
got all dressed up in
my favorite outfit
did my hair the way
I thought
looked best
wanted to impress
posed, for just a minute
in a pile of leaves
behind my sisters
one 'look'
one fake smile
one face radiating joy
me,
trying not to get leaves on my clothes
yet this picture
was my favorite for two years
why?

I love the rhythm. :)

I am always honest when I write, so you're not the only one!!

"I thought

LOVED that one. Actually I loved all of it. :)

Um...bonus trivia question, eh? I'm guessing 3.

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh

Hmmm.... Really interesting.

Really interesting. I read it over twice. Your poetry is amazing!! :) And 3, I think? I clicked on your page and read your bio when I saw the question. And I saw you like Ingrid Michaelson. I love "The Way I Am" so much! Haha. I'm not very familiar with her other songs, though.

Have you heard of A Fine Frenzy? She writes different music than Ingrid Michaelson but she's also skilled at songwriting!

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Thank you both! Yep, 3

Thank you both!
Yep, 3 sisters. :) I thought I'd see if you could tell!

And HomeschoolGirl, I do like A Fine Frenzy! Pandora is the best for introducing me to new music.

The most astonishing thing about miracles is that they happen.

This is really sad - and

This is really sad - and honest. I understand what it's like to be more honest in writing.
