Forced Away Chapter 1 extendedChapter 1
A broken heart
There was a time in the 90's, that 2 little children loved each other.
Both kids were almost 6 years old, but although they knew they would share their life with each other.
But something happened that day ..
.something that burned into my memory ..
My mother was standing in the doorway of our classroom that day.
I ran to her, because I was so happy to see her again!
'Mommy!' I yelled happy at her, and hugged her legs.
While I hugged her, she talked to my teacher.
I always thought the teacher was strange. Because she had chubby legs.
But on that moment I didn't thought about that. I was only thinking about what was going to happen that day.
'Children!' the teacher said 'I have to say something'
Every little child was listening to her.
Especially me and Ilse.
'Our dear Hans is going to another school'
That moment I could only cry, and hugged Ilse very tight.
My mother grabbed my hand and wanted to force me away from Ilse!
But my anger was stronge
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
Keep in Touch!
