The Prenuptial – Author Lyne Beringer

 

I teetered on a razor’s edge

My head dull and color blind

No direction seemed the way to turn

Not a single answer did I find

The darkness waited patiently

Holding secrets to be shared

All that was required

Was to swear I never cared

Confusion took up residence

And as far as I could see

A dream and little pocket change

Were the gifts bestowed on me

So I gathered up my pennies

Threw them in the street

Gave away a Washington

So I could feel complete

Then my closet got the best of me

As I lay sprawled out on the floor

Happy just two feet away

Behind a sturdy maple door

Quietly I pondered how

I might ever get the nerve

To stand up and demand that dream

Get all that I deserve

Excerpt from the book “Alaskan Vogue”


BeFunkyPhotoAbout the Author

I never thought the word “writer” would be used to describe me and the thoughts that tumble out of my head onto paper. It’s a new me, giving away words all neatly packaged up in rhyme.

 I have lived in the interior of Alaska off and on for nearly twenty years. Alaska gets in your blood. It lures you in then takes your soul hostage, becoming part of who you are, who you become. Every summer, the days are warm, long, and inviting. Tourists descend in droves, racing toward the next adventure, and a rich, colorful history provides plenty of businesses with trinkets to sell the Alaskan nostalgia.  Anything seems possible when you are standing outside at midnight and the stars are nowhere to be found. That is until winter rolls back around.
