She faded into the atmosphere.
Sometimes unexpected events
blindside us, and other times,
choices wait nearby for the
reaching – consequences
need accommodating.

She faded into the atmosphere…
laughter once filled the room
with joy bouncing off walls.
Tequila and wine coolers
ebbed worries, deep dialogues
of divulged truths lingered into
the night.

Now colorless cobwebs suspend
of long-ago memories
with the realization
no new memories
will be in the making.

    1. I lost a friend of almost 40 years to alcohol, so she lives in her own world now. And I miss her. As we know, poetry brings out all emotions. Thanks for your comment, Joanna. I appreciate it. 💕

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Diana. She was a good friend from almost 40 years ago, so it’s very sad how things have turned out. And yes, everyone suffers. And life is not always a bowl of cherries. 🙂 💞

I appreciate your thoughts!
