Julie


        ........by her own hand


Julie, dear niece
i hardly knew you


locked as you were
in combat with your demons


but you shunned me good
at your father's burial


i, standing with mother
you embraced mother


and left as though
i was never there


breathing, cold sober
as always, my flaw


now, as of today
Julie 0 demons 1


forever.........

The beauty of this comes from its subtlety, which gives the reader pause to read between the lines. Its somber tones run to chilling depths. ~~Nordette

Reviewed by Michelle Mills 3/23/2005
Oh Henry, I'm sorry for your loss. This was a terribly sad but effective write. Blessings, Michelle
Reviewed by Mr. Ed 3/23/2005
Truly sad, Henry - and sadly, I think, something that occurs in many families today.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 3/23/2005
This was sad; but I think in her state of mind of grieve, she might have forgotten to do a lot of other things as well. You should not take this to heart and feel sad. I think I know during this time, everyone is more sensitive to realities.

Hope you'll feel better soon.
