The Room That Holds Me

written by: JAnn Bowers



Walk through the door
Of this tiny room
Glance around
Sit for awhile
The many calendars hanging
Of different years
Of different rock bands
The small bed
The antique dresser
The bedside table
The odds and ends
Of knickknacks
Of plaques
Of handmade crafts
The smell of candle wax
Left over scents of incense
Peek at the jewelry
Strung here and there
The stereo
Which plays her favorite band
The laptop
She writes her poetry on
The hundreds of notebooks
Folders, pens, and markers
Adult coloring book
The old dusty floor
The awful salmon pink and baby blue walls
The tie die blanket for a curtain
The family photos
Of lost loved ones
Memories bounce from wall to wall
Loneliness sneaks out of the closet

This is me…
Who you have cherished.
