Please Don't Leave Me Here

Poem By Sherman Peebody

Mom! I want to go with you!
Please! Don't leave me here!
At home alone with brothers grim,
They stab me with their jeer...

Mom! I want to go with you!
Please! Don't leave me here!
They frolic in the swimming pool,
I am at loss for cheer....

Mom! I want to go with you!
Please! Don't leave me here!
We spent some days at friends of ours,
Stained sheets brought d'risions sneer...

Mom! I want to go with you!
Please! Don't leave me here!
Fear for you wells in my heart,
When you are not so near...

Fabric Of Life

Heavy is this shroud of guilt...
Worn all my life.
Fringed in promise unfulfilled,
Of patchwork knit contrite...

Disappointment

Of late I have not been around,
Stopped receiving mail.
Canceled all appearances,
Planned no moving sale.

Friends

What color is your Prozac?
Mine is orange and gray.
A total forty milligrams,
To get me through each day.

The Closing Door

Mom had dropped us in a rush,
We'd risen late from bed.
Another day in Catholic school,
That place of fear and dread.

Emotion

Emotion is a telephone,
That rings incessantly.
Emotion is a person who,
Calls to speak with me.
