Life less #pain #love #poetry


“yes I feel it too”

I said to no one

in caged, abysmal loneliness

every foot -step echoed a cadenced

“no turning back”

“all is gone”

“where did love go?”

“was it ever?”

when he looked in my eyes

did he embrace another?

daily I flogged my heart

that I might feel

for numbness had become

my closest ally

(friends had all but fled)

“what if death became

my final offering?”

it would have been your moment of celebratory height

(you play the martyr well)

now through this pain  encased

I feel again

I raise my cracked crystal glass

(ironically a wedding present)

“YES -I will live!!!”

you will need to find victory

in another’s destruction

for my life is worth more than that alabaster vase

you purchased for my remains

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. 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. What wonder–poetry! I’ve not been here regularly, and to ‘catch up’ I need but read one post, one set of well crafted words, to sing the song:

    “…Getting to know you
    getting to know all about you…”

    Nice to be here although I hate WP (they sucked me in to Gravatar or something like that…
    PEACE, Leslie!

  2. Yes, I agree that writing haiku chneags the way one views things. Part of the practice of writing haiku, for me anyway, is to practice letting things just be what they are. Which seems to open a door into peace & acceptance.As for your third line above you know, you might get the effect you want by re-arranging the existing lines. Here’s a two-line rearrangement:above dying embersacrid smoke and live red sparksOr 3-line:dying embers wisps of acrid smoke freckledwith live red sparksI kind of like the 2-line better. Not crazy about freckled but felt the phrase needed a verb. Maybe not freckled could be cut.You might play around with all the possible order of images and see what happens.
