I Remember (an attempt at a poem)
I remember knowing that it had begun At the same moment That I knew that it would end. Memorizing your profile as you slept Knowing we would not last, Knowing we were not meant to last. You were my closest, and yet I held you far Knowing time knew too much. We were not meant to be but for a time You said that you would miss me. I remember I will never forget you Suspended in our first, starlit kiss.
I was raised in a very free-thinking family of great proportions, living a semi-nomadic life between northern and central california, traveling, and often living, in a VW van. I received a BA in Religious Studies and Cultural Anthropology at UCSB, have worked for a wine magazine, and traveled as much as possible. I am now a thirty-three-year-old-mostly-content-stay-at-home-mom living in the Bay Area with my husband, two-year-old daughter, and very energetic Golden Retriever.
