•{ I love you, or whatever . . .

I sat at the kitchen table with my face buried in my hands, trying to hold back the tears in my eyes today. My voice was stronger than I felt, but even it was riddled with breaks. “I’ll send word. Every three days.” I said between my hands. “That’s what he said. He promised me. Every three days.”

The gentle touch of a small hand settled down on my shoulder. “You knew that was an impossible promise to make. Consider where he went.” The words were probably suppose to be comforting, but it only added anger to the rest of what I was feeling.

I huffed in frustration as I slammed my fist upon the table and stood up, knocking my chair and my mother, back from me. “He promised me!” I shouted at her. Pain escaping through my eyes as tears now that I had nothing to hold them back. “He promised!”

I ran from the kitchen. My feet pounded loudly on the stairs as I went up to his bedroom. The dog looked up from his spot on the floor as I ran into the room. Ever since my bother left for the War, Hawk had been staying in the room. I guess he missed him too.

I went to the window and looked out across the distance. From this vantage point I had a clear view of anyone approaching the house and, for maybe the hundredth time, I wished I’d see my brother striding up the path with his bag over his shoulder. He had been gone a few months now and every few days I’d get a letter. Fifteen days ago those letters stopped. Then mamma got a call: “We’ve lost contact with your son”, that’s what it said. We didn’t know if he was alive or dead. All we knew was that he was missing.

The way the phone dropped out of mamma’s hand; the look on her face, the world had shattered for her right then. I guess it did for me too.

I’m not sure which is worst: knowing someone is dead, or knowing that they’re missing in hostile territory. At least the last leaves room for hope.

I pulled out the last letter I received from him. He told me to keep smiling and keeping my chin up. I’m trying. I’m trying so hard. “I love you or whatever.” That was always how he ended his letters.

Just come home, brother. Alive. I love you, or, whatever. . .

•{ Dueling Pianos . . .

It’s after hours and the lights are low
The buzz beings at the end of the show

The stage is set for the war of the keys
Everybody’s waiting so eagerly

Soon the drummer will ratta-tat-tat out the beat
Waiting for its accompanying treat

Let’s see who’s the better: your song or mine
It’s Dueling Pianos, our after hours game
Here we go, only this time it’s not the same.

I got your letter
at a half past eight
Funny, the mail doesn’t come this late.

Opened it up
I’m spilling petals on the floor
the words, they read, “When can I see you once more?”

Staring out the window
looking for a sign
Hold up
step back
let the scene rewind

Petals on the floor
Now I’m looking at the door
the mail doesn’t come this late

•{ Feeling the change . . .

Sunrise was right around the corner. The dark sky had already turned gray with the promise of a bright day trying to break through the clouds. I had been up for hours, but now that it was light enough to see, I ventured out and sat down in the grass and flowers. It was peaceful out here, quiet.

Over the past week I’d been feeling restless and unsettled, but most importantly I’d been feeling a shift. I don’t know if I’m prepared, but whether I am or not, it’s happening.

Autumn waits around the corner. The season of change.

“Something has changed within me. Something is not the same. I’m through with playing by the rules of someone else’s game. Too late for second-guessing. Too late to go back to sleep. It’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap . . . “ Defying Gravity – Wicked
