Sister Sonnet
By Gaby Small

Shadows tossed by an orange setting sun,
Awaiting the fall day we come undone.
The quivering last kiss, hug, cry good-bye;
Brilliance stripped of their only ally.
Sisters who once shared a womb, life and room;
Just four times a year our lives will resume.
Surrendering parents of troubled minds;
Shipped in two directions soon to unwind.
Trivial dreams of our mischievous ways,
Stolen by sullen eyes in dark hallways.
Our only confidante right out of reach;
Existing alone they’ll just have to teach.
Reminiscing echoes of childhood laughs,
New life began torn from our other half.
