Endpoint Examinations


I sleep away these notions as I work

I try to follow some odd plan of day

Including walks by neighbors  where they stay

Still hidden from other fears where they lurk.

Our drama though still holds its weight in milk

Each gallon as it finds its way to bin

Just “playing part” I say with little grin

And daydream of the days my sheets were silk.

I know that masked or not we need to talk

But I still find this task extremely hard

As if my lips become a Cottage Cheese.

I come off more the whiner than the Rilke

The pieces seem to break in smaller shard

This jagged glass carries the weight of fees


So what is said and done will last lifetimes

It is pointless to be victims of love

Guess I prefer wearing the villain’s glove

To navigate unprecedented times.

I know you hate my optimism dear

I feel like we are living our own life

Instead of ex-husband and former wife

We both need freedom to fight off our fear.

I would rather not throw stones in my house

I have no desire to try to compete

When truly I embrace my own struggle.

Of course I miss the mystery of your blouse

When trying to express passion a feat

As we try the uncoupling juggle.


Sometimes today is difficult to grasp

Above trying to find each puzzle tile

Around the reality of our file

This remains after days of terror clasp.

Emotions raw and never seem to heal

We put so much of our lives into our books

Our daily thoughts so rich behind our looks

Our struggles now are just part of the deal.

I admit in relationships I sour

Like milk left on the counter for a day

And current situations where we stand.

But somehow gardens begin to flower

Every spring after winter’s delay

But never linear as I had planned.


On concrete side of divide we both sit

As world comes barreling towards our choices

Our ears grown numb to each other’s voices,

Our legs, from sitting on the road, hold grit.

I believe this world is based upon work

But leave open the fact I am lazy

How small stressor find a way to phase me,

The real me, human frailty, where  I lurk.

So honestly I think we work as team

Even though we will not break these prideful

Habits we have cultured over the years.

Sometimes we find ourselves on top like cream

Our vanilla yogurt remains stride full

This seems to be different then this appears.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing.
