Not many people will understand this piece because not many have a relative, a daughter, a sister who is autistic.

And even then, not many people have Emily for a sister.

Dulce Dulce Dulce

My sister is 13 and
She has one friend
My mother invited Dulce
To Emily's birthday party.

Dulce's mother said yes
And Emily was happy
-an amazing grin on her face
-bouncing up and down
the couch in her blue dress.

Two hours into the party
And the one friend
Still hadn't arrived

The one friend's mother called
And Emily was happy
To hear Dulce's name
In the conversation.

My mother stopped her
Fussing in the kitchen,
Set down the phone,
Told her Dulce was not coming.

Yes, yes Dulce come
No, no Dulce can't come

And then a sudden gasp
For air, a wail of

[I wanted to reach into
the ear piece of the phone,
Grab the woman and

And the couch sat still;
The blue dress deflated
and floated back to earth.

She was 14 when she
finally landed.

  Wow. I loved this piece. And you are right, I cannot relate. I can imagine that sad look on her face though, and just seeing the disappointment in her eyes, oh it would be heartbreaking. I didn't really understand what you meant what you said She was 14 when she
finally landed. If you could explain, that would be awesome. Great read/write!

  Okay, so when I read this poem at first I couldn't even comment on it because it was so sad I couldn't stand it.

But now it's like a week later and I just wanted to say something about it. Even if that something is "Sheesh I really like it!"

I can just imagine Emily nodding, and being so excited about Dulce.

  dude, this almost brought tears to my beautiful luscious, chocolate colored eyes.

NO joke.

The effect of emily being 13 and landing as 14 was pretty powerful. The emotions was definitely felt like a wave of heat.

it made me think back again and you definitely captured all the emotions. the sadness and disappointment all at once. Especially to emily that has no friend but one.
Dulce Dulce Dulce....what am I going to do with you??

The back and forth conversation that mama and emily had wen she didn't want to believe that Dulce was coming...definitely made this poem even more heartfelt.

"And the couch sat still;
The blue dress deflated
and floated back to earth."

Very good....very very good.
