My Memories – A Poem by James Tucci

It’s dark out

The sun has set over Biscayne Bay

I am by myself

With only a view of darkened waters

But I am not alone

I have my memories

Of my life

And the lives of others

The lives of my family

And those I have loved

Those memories are my companions

And my friends

They are my support and solace

I am not alone

The Girl I Never Met

The Girl I Never Met

The Girl I Never Met

The sun was setting as she walked into the house.
It was disappearing below the horizon rapidly.
All I saw was a glimpse of her
Her hair flowed to her shoulders
As she looked down at the steps
Rising into the beach bungalow
She wore shorts and a white t-shirt
From what I could see
She looked like a nice person
She reached for the screen door
At the same time the setting sun was no longer in the sky
As I looked back to see her for another second
I saw that she had entered the house
The next day I left the beach
I was never to see her again
Sometimes I wonder what became of her
But our meeting was not meant to be
She is only a memory without much meaning
But for some reason she lingers in my mind.
