I’VE BEEN AWAY FOR A WHILE

 

IT WAS NOT A PLACE FULL OF CAPITAL LETTERS. OR CAPITOL LETTERS EITHER.

 

I WISH I KNEW WHERE I GO AND WHERE I WENT. STILL AFTER ALL THIS TIME

 

WHERE I AM AND WHERE I GO REMAINS MYSTERIOUS. BUT

 

AND THERE IS ALWAYS AT LEAST UNTIL NOW A BUT

 

BUT I AM STILL, WITH WORDS IN MY HANDS AND WORDS IN MY HEART, STILL HERE.

 

TRYING OUT THOSE WORDS. ONE BY ONE BY ONE.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
