Temporary


I suppose it means I’m healing if I can dream again My heart seems resilient But I wonder just how much Rubber bands stretch Silks tear Bones break Hearts shatter Feelings fade Everything is temporary. Copyright © 2015 Maricel Jiménez Peña

Whispered Word


I once whispered a word into someone's ear without feeling myself drifting And as I heard the phrases echoed in the silence I questioned their reality Wondering if it was my own voice and not his. Copyright @ Maricel Jimenez Peña 2001 Originally written on 9/20-21/2001
