The Knife’s Revenge #poetry

This is the knife’s echo to – “Deeper than her heart “

It had been a mere scratch on his hand that was made as he took the plunge

“her heart I tell you” he instructed the knife

“all of it”

The knife seemed to have its own will

It spared me

the poison of death

was forged into its steel

why I was spared I can only guess

but one year later

the innocuous cut upon his hand

a mere scratch

laid his body dead

the blade laughed a maniacal laugh

“for the one who took so much life shall be taken”

“be ground to dust empty hearted one”

I got an anonymous note

“we bled him dry. your healing is complete”


If I’m still on the road, don’t blame me it’s the dogs fault…

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. Leslie! This morning, in a moment-burst of joy, I asked my Guardian Angel Flexibelle, to surprise me today. And she DID. Here I am reading about knives, scratches, a heart escaping its final fate…and DEATH to the Peep, whose hand was in charge of all!

    Thanks for this ‘lethargy-deleting’ post, woman! Well done.
    Still with JOY.
    (Still on the road–in my dreams!)

    PS…WHY do I like: “be ground to dust empty hearted one”??? But I do!


  2. Green Speck – sometimes the knife gets its day out of court…
    Thanks Joseph yes there is always a dark side of the moon
    Charles – you know it – dog dayz
    Steve- you always make me smile – it’s not helping defeat the wrinkles (smile)
