MY ENDURING BONES

Stories , Poems, and More By A.M. Moscoso

I grew up in a haunted house.

 

Something dark and unearthly used to watch me sleep.

Something dark and unearthly  used to follow  people around the house at night.

 

Once it was suggested we do something to get rid of that dark and unearthly creature

that used to watch me sleep

that used to follow people around at night

that smelled like oranges,

when it began it’s dark and lonely travels around our home  after midnight.

 

In the end we let it stay

and when I go home

it still

watches over me when I sleep

and it still

 follows people around the house at night

and I think it wanders around

the garden when the Orchids are in bloom.

 

It has a home

with me

and with us

I think that after all of the years

we are

Family

now.
