Jeanette Cheezum’s most recent poem to appear here was “Depression” (June 2018)

By Jeanette Cheezum 

Chilled, nervous, and not sure why this mood had washed over her.
She sat in the privacy of her own home.

Years had passed since her mama had passed away and she
thought her grief was over.

She’d split her energy, trying to raise a family, run a business and
be the best wife she could. 

Always exhausted, but there were times when she could share being a
daughter again.

On that sad and lonely day, had her mother died, while waiting for her
to call or visit?
