"Autism & Memoirs of an Old Maid"…C'hele's Story

What am I waiting for?
I don’t know.
But I know its coming.

Catch me if you can.

That won’t be hard, I’m getting older.
I won’t be caught silently though.
I still have two good fists and a big mouth.

On second thought,
When the time does come?

There’s nothing like a warm blanket and a dark room.
Please make sure that when you enter the room?
That you’re quiet,

Really quiet.



  1. Silence, a warm blanket, and a dark room are so pleasant when experienced simultaneously. I do enjoy your poetry, keep it coming!

  2. Thank you Waxing, but I confess, this poetry is about my leaving the world when I am old. The “you” entering the room is death and my eventual acceptance of it. Morbid, I know, lol. But I am telling the truth!

  3. OH wow. I totally missed that. I don’t really think death is morbid. I think it’s natural.

  4. Just finished reading a book about a Sufi being ready for death. Once again you prove to be a true mystic.

    • Hi Platty! Nice to see you again my friend. Thanks for your comment! I would love to know the name of the book you were just commenting about. It’s right down my alley at present. I am preparing to take a Hospice course in the summer. It sounds really good………:)

  5. Funny that this poem could either reflect on the coming of death or the coming of love!
