Please Don’t Turn Your Back On Me© by Felina Silver Robinson

I know you thought you knew me well
You never thought you would see the day
The day when you would be picking me up off the floor
But it’s not because of what you think
I’m not a user or abuser of any drug
I’m not a prisoner of any alcoholic drink
I’m simply sick from chemo that I started last week
I was too proud to ask for help
I was too proud to need someone
But you found me here weak and crying
Hovering over my insides poured out
I never saw any of this coming
It hit me like a ton of bricks
My hair falls out clump by clump
Some days I’m whiter than a ghost
Other days I’m bright and Rosie
My stomach is usually on strike
Because it doesn’t want to eat
I thought I could hide all that I’m suffering through
I thought you would never have to seem this way
Now that you know the truth
Please don’t turn your back on me

What I know© by Felina Silver Robinson

The lights are down low
You sit watching me through the glow of the moon and the stars
I dare wonder the thoughts that pass through your mind
What I do know is what I see
I watch your eyes swell with feelings of love
Your body reacts to what it’s thinking about
We find ourselves entwined within the jungle of love
No one can see us
We are hidden from sight to our delight
Free to do as we please
Without prying eyes
Or the worry of judgement day on our agenda
What I do know is that this night will never be forgotten

Sunset© by Felina Silver Robinson

Amber rays burn through the afternoon sky
The baby blue sky appears to be on fire
As the amber rays stretch across the crystal blue canvas
A gray smokey mist stomps across the sunset
Defusing the amber fire
I sit in my car so entranced by the view
There is a line of traffic backed up behind me
But no one is angry because everyone is enjoying the same view
Sunsets are our stolen moments of peace and tranquility

Note to my new readers: About my “Poem Bursts” – I give myself 30 seconds to one minute, and then write what comes to mind. This is a fun writing exercise I give myself to come up with something different from what I might usually write. I hope you enjoy the outcome.
