Senseless #poetry


Awaken???
I have seen far too much
To want to be alive
Inhale?
You ask me to breathe the air
There is none to breathe
Look?
See again the horrors
My life has seen them all
Feel?
No – My heart was broken once
My skin peeled back
Leave Me!
My world without feeling
Is better when you are gone

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. I would never call this senseless. It is most sentient. Person seems to have recently cut the bonds of a very hurtful relationship and is going thru 1st level of healing whee wounds are very raw. Nothing to cure this individual but saline dressing to the soul. Bitter, but can’t see it as permanent state unless the afflicted is hopelessly imbalanced. The poetry is to the point and holds up a stay away sign for all, at least for the moment.

  2. Emphatic ending to a poem invoking sympathy for the subject by relating questioned action, perception, and feeling to the negatives she is determined to both challenge and accept. Well done challenge response, Moonie

  3. Ouch! Feelings and string emotions leapt out of the screen at me as I was reading this, Moon… Very powerfully written!
    Like Timekeen says, the poem makes us feel grateful for what we have (what many probably don’t 😦 )
