The wind slashes Against your face Stabbing your skin Like bloodless needles You walk one Step, then another While your toes Scream in agony They sit behind Warm fireplaces and Cut their cake After turning you Away from their Doorbell that sounded A lot like pianos The snow continues To fall with A cold ferocity The roads laugh And make love To the ice. (Gypsy)
The house crumbles As you watch It fight a Losing battle against The shreiking flames There are no Children inside, it Seems like there Is still a Shred of conscience Lurking within your Coal black soul You wait for The smoke to Spread, while you Stand hundred feet From the wreckage Before dialling 911. (Arsonist)
The cemetery looks Like a place That you could End up calling As your home The only regret That churns within Your bones is That they did Not consider you Worthy of an Epitaph, the casket Is lowered and You make peace With your sins One last time The grave dies A silent death Mirroring a life Equally as nameless.
I died on 28th August, 2005. Hurricane Katrina took me away from my sister.
I remember the winds howling outside the little shack we lived in. We would have relocated to a safer area if we could have. But that little shack was all we knew as a home.
I remember the shack collapsing upon us. The storm was merciless, and I was trapped inside for a day before I was finally rescued and wheeled to a hospital. The doctors did what they could but I was severely dehydrated and my vital organs were failing.
On 26th August, I slipped into a coma. Two days later, my sister put me out of my misery by signing my life away. ___________________
My brother perished in Hurricane Katrina. I survived, penniless and homeless.
I can never forget that week, when everything in my world was ripped apart. I remember crying as my brother was trapped under debris for a day. I watched him slip away from me in the hospital.
When the last of my money was exhausted on medical expenses, I did the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I walked away from the room as the nurses pulled out the tubes that were tethering him to this world.
I worked paycheck to paycheck and moved from city to city as I struggled in vain to get a semblance of stability in my life. _____________________
We walked out of the facility on 14th August, 2017. We breathed in the sunshine for the first time in seven years. I looked at my sister and smiled. She grinned back.
Hurricane Harvey struck three days later.
