To A Breaking Family

Poem By Katherine Coolage

You do realize, of course, that this strife spreads.
It isn't just you who cries.
But the whole house shakes as we pick up the broken pieces.

And slowly we heal.
The old wounds smooth over, and we wait, pretending to laugh.
Until today happens tomorrow.

I want to talk to you right now, Lily. I really do.
I need someone to talk to,
and you're the only one I can trust.
I'm in my basement, now.

I'M Sorry, Brother

I'm Sorry.
I'm sorry for my failings as a sister.
I'm sorry for all of the things I didn't do
And for all the things I did.

First Time Needs No Love

Now, this won't hurt a bit.
First time, you panic.
It's okay, everyone does.
