Random Quote

I could travel the cosmos, but Iā€™d choke on the stars.

Petals and poetry, puddles of peonies
light my way along this crumbling path
where the rain has struck me, and fallen, I have
I carry myself with perfection
but this perfectionist is flawed
Nights I calmly whisper my feelings
to myself, as I fall into a not so deep sleep
No one to hear the cries, but four cracked walls
and maybe my pillows join the conversation

    Nice narrative poem…with a great alliterative opening. I like the cracked wall and the pillow joining in. A study in poetic isolation. Nice job! šŸ™‚

    That was great! Unfortunatly I can’t leave some grand literary comment as your other comment- heck I’m a foodie not a poet or writer lol. But I do enjoy and love your writing and poetry very much and it is always so moving, heartfelt and beautiful and stirs my soul and touch my heart.

      Oh, I adore food. I’m always eating. I’m sure there’s a writer in you Beth. It puts such a huge smile on my face knowing how much my work moves you. Thank you so much! ā™„

    Really nice, I felt the last four stanzas…

      Thank you Zully. Don’t we all calmly whisper our inner feelings to ourselves at night as we fall into a not so deep sleep? ā™„ šŸ™‚
