The Pain of Quarantine

Trapped
Cut off from others
To prevent the spread
Yet not full blocked
I hear voices
Of those having fun
Laughs of my child
Who I must avoid
Smells of food
Forbidden until I heal
Feel of wind and sun
Through the window
Promises of the world
I wish to join again
Time and patience
Precious tools
That are not always at hand

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Functional is good. Better than being on your death bed. Tomorrow you will be slightly above functional!
