Creative Writing: Breathing Space

Mrs Matilda Kalil

Pictures are memories:

The passage creaking with your footsteps,
Rosaries trickling down your papery thin fingers,
Your papery hands dissolving over oily food,
The passage creaking with your footsteps.
Garlic over everything you made!
Your papery hands dissolving over oily food,
Your drawer in the secret room, secret boxes…
Garlic over everything you made!
Your exit, a knife to my heart, my soul.
Your drawer in the secret room, secret boxes…
Pray the rosary everyday, everyday!
Your exit, a knife to my heart, my soul.
Rosaries trickling down your papery thin fingers,
Pray the rosary everyday, everyday!
Pictures are memories.
