About Marie Matheny

I've been writing poems most of my life and usually I feel I write my favorite ones from sad times that I have suffered. It is then that I pour my heart and soul into it. I feel much better afterwards as if I've purged and whenever I go back later and reread my heartaches and heartbreaks I know I got it right if those old feelings come back. Hopefully you will also feel and understand what I'm trying to convey as you read them too.

    Getting the grandkids
    For the weekend
    Starts out sweet and calm
    Soon it turns to chaos

  • Dementia

    • Published: December 17, 2021

    in Sickness Poems

    There are times when things seem normal again
    We laugh and talk about trivial things
    We enjoy each other's company
    But we can't deny the thought in our minds

    I love it. It reminds me of my friend on his birthday. How he enjoyed it to the fullest. I still recall the day like it was yesterday.

  • A Day At The Beach

    • Published: May 2018

    in Beach Poems

    The sun and sand go hand in hand.
    The sound of constant waves -
    There's a smell of salt in the air.
    The ocean is seen through a haze.

    You've painted a picture that would make most who read it edger to find a beach somewhere and experience it for themselves. Your depiction is dead on.

    She lovingly handles
    her mother with care
    as she washes and curls
    and fixes her hair.

I was so touched by this heartbreaking tale that no person should have to endure, nevertheless a twelve-year-old. I was lucky and never had something so overwhelmingly hard to live through happen to me. I thought I understood how painful it could be for anyone who hadn't been so lucky. I didn't know. Now I fully understand how hard this experience can be and how it could truly ruin lives. My heart goes out to the author. I cried when I read it. It was beautifully written and I'm sure it will help others that have been through the same ordeal feel that they are not alone - that someone else has been there and has put their story out there to help others understand. Thank you for sharing your poem.
