Sometimes the words flow like a murder of crows. They've held my secrets for the past 65-years. And sometimes they repeat them back to me, and laugh.

Yesterdays Mascara

Yesterday's mascara did little to disguise
The world of love and loss and grief
You hide behind your eyes.
And when you woke this morning
To a smudge that won't wash away
It's more of a shadow from your past
A reminder of yesterday...
When...

Bennie Got His Bone

Bennie was found in an alley alone
Trying to guard an old chewed up bone
He growled at the world, as it closed in on him
He fought with the rope... but he didn't win
Hauled to the-pound and labeled 'aggressive'
Sentenced to death, for being...

Out of the Ash

My mother is ash
Her whole life in the trash
But her spirit
refuses to burn.

I'm like my mother
We are larger than life
And our spirits
Won't fit in an urn.

So, on the sad day
You build an altar to display
An urn full of nothing
but...

Foggy the Cat

Needing escape from the mournful howls,
The smell of death; the human growls
I grabbed my things and decided to leave
When a soft little paw, snagged my sleeve.

He'd done this before, just a few days ago
His color was fog-mist, with sprinkles...

That Empty Space

How many pills will it take to replace
That once peaceful look, on your face.
And how many drinks will fill up that
Empty space, in your soul

All those magic potions, do little to disguise
That haunted look in your once, brilliant eyes
And...

Thank you Christina. I wish more people would (like you), experience volunteering in an animal shelter, and feel it for themselves. Many high points as well as low. Just being able to cuddle with a cat or take a dog to the playground...even if it's the last connection to kindness they feel; at least they 'felt' it. Looking back at those days...I believe it was time, very well spent.

WOW! Powerful messaging here. It almost sounds like it could be turned into a 'Rap' song! And don't be shocked by that....I'm 67 and think I just wrote a Rap-song myself. I think they're generated by unfulfilled justice. Great job. I love this :)

I just read this again Donna...and honestly think it is a work of art! I hope you keep submitting your poetry, because your style is much more appreciated than you might believe; with your:vivid imagery and brilliant message, I'm still baffled. This poem deserved top honors.

I love all of the inspiration I get from fellow poets...so I'll be here as long as I'm allowed :). Just reading the emotions and visions offered by others is well worth the price of submitting a poem. We'll see each other soon I hope!

Thank you Linda. After re-reading this a few times, I don't really think I gave the 'Bennies' in the world the voice he needed, but I very much value your opinion. :)

Congratulations everyone! There were a few gems in this grouping of poems that I don't think were recognized for the beautiful pieces they are. And that isn't to take anything away from the winners...all very deserving! If it were up to me, I'd probably give out at least 10 1st place prizes. I guess it's a good thing it's 'not up to me' :). Very hard month for judging! I had to stop reading several times, due to the heavy emotional impact and tears blinding me.
