No truer words were written! These actions are why I quit going out on Black Friday - after giving thanks for all you have, then you rush out to get more - so ironic. I liked your poem and am in agreement about computer shopping.
OH I loved this piece of work. It reminded me about books I have read of Ireland by great authors Nora Roberts & Jude Devereaux. I would definitely read this just to see how it ended. Have a great day and Happy Holidays.
This was the cutest thing I've read in a long time. It is just so unexpected and full of hope and joy. Thank you for writing this wonderful piece. So creative and I can just imagine the little kids' faces when they heard the price tag of the items they wanted. So original! Great job.
I understand this so much, experienced the same. No one ever called to check on me nor asked me to return - it's like out of side out of mind. I know how personal this is to you. I enjoyed reading your poem.
This made me very sad...as I have the same memories of my own mother and now wonder if my son feels the same about me. I think it is sometimes hard for people to express their feelings. I believe your last sentence, "This memory now brings me regret..." why would you regret it if it is the only memory you have where you felt at ease. Maybe for regret of all the other times when you didn't feel that way?
A little twist at the end...so its a dream and your mother really isn't a vampire? Because if she was you wouldn't be able to see her reflection in the mirror...well that's the way I'm reading it. I like the twist - and it is you're too strong.
