Written by Life Coach Carioca Da Gema


They were quiet for years

No children

Barbeque on Sundays

She shopped for antiques

He talked on an old radio

Gingerbread home

Last night

In the dark

Nervous loud words I could not understand

Boxes being tossed in car

Things falling off boxes

The open door in the house illuminates the scene

shut the door

Trembles the scene

Door open in car

Bell and light on

No one to see

Years pulverized by new tension

Like falling through the open cracks on cement floors
