Split open

The longer version:

Split open, show your core
Sink down in padded moss
Ancient whispers, echoing in the wind
Hear the sorrows and joys
Before old rites vanish into fog
Spirited away to oceans
Forgotten by humans
Heard only by fishes

I am the Inbetween

I am not the mother or the crone
I am another creature entirely
I am in between worlds
Spiritual realms and realness intertwined

Barriers of my own making
Tricked me into solitude
Damned by the expectations of others
The doctrines of polite...

Pantoum to Sadness

Sadness is a stealthy seductress
She whispers alluring words
Offering the comfort of familiarity
On well-worn paths into the darkness

She whispers alluring words
Begging me to come to her once again
On well-worn paths into the darkness

Silver Lining

Every cloud has a silver lining
Every devil a silver tongue
Which silver is better
Or worse
Lovers paint words gold
Hoping to seduce
Alchemize
Hypnotize
Drunk on your lies
I rationalize
Synthesize
Forming a solution
that is no longer me...

Lost in useless territory.

Wandering without purpose
Is my useless purpose

Branches reaching towards me
With twisted arms welcoming
And blocking passage at the same time

Do branches speak the language
Of the world, my world, the fairy world
The languages I am yet...

your honesty and wit are just some of the reasons why I love you my friend. Now go write some non-rhyming confusing poetry :)

the class was all about using constraints to write poetry. We picked a picture of a place and wrote about it then we were instructed to pair it down to 30 syllables then 15. I think the point was to end up with a haiku but I really liked the middle version. If you are perplexed then maybe I get it because I know the original story but the rest of the world is like “huh”. If it stinks of fishes I can delete it :)

I love this poem. Such a beautiful tribute to someone we love but aren’t meant to be with forever. I’m totally into tarot too.

Holy moly, this one is amazing. You blew the socks off my attempts at pantoums. I did need a dictionary for “superciliousness” but it was worth expanding my vocabulary. Great work!

most of mine only get one or two votes. Most people seem to read and not vote. I would say pay to promote one or two but I’ve had no luck. I get 100 views within an hour with no comments.

Thanks so much for your kind words. You’ve inspired me to write another pantoum. I was stuck on a poem and that’s the push it needed. Thanks so much for recommending the Elizabeth Bishop poem. It’s amazing!
