bruised

to the four winds
without aim
thoughts scatter


heat of summer
threatens
tinder wood emotions


a voice silenced by loss
cracks against the hard surface
of estrangement


in shadow
encroaching dampness
lingering cold
wait


at every turn
evoked memories bruise
on the edge
of
lust
need
wanting
heartbreak unattended,
ignored


consumed by sadness
a future beckons
brimming with indifference

  4. I believe
    loving oneself
    erases any indifference.
    A big big hug,
    Merisi

    The poem is Emily Dickinson worthy.

  5. Ah, darling, you may imagine that the future is brimming with indifference, but we are not. We love you. Take that with you wherever you go, please.

  6. Ah love! So much sadness is hard for me to bear. Hard to feel virtual hugs isn't it? JM's under the knife LM looking for answers and I can't hug any of you. XX

  8. Darlin' Saz...your poetry is beyond brilliant...I applaud the extraordinary talent of the poet...but my heart breaks for you, the lovely lady that you are...I love you. And while girl friends are not the same, nevertheless, I'm here for you...but you already know that! Need a shoulder and a cup of chai? I'll sit and cry with you, dearest! And give you a big hug! Love, Janine XO

  9. I have mentioned many times that writing is my passion...but it's my poetry that is the very soul of me, the things I can't otherwise put into words. There is so much said here in so few words, Saz. Beautifully.

  12. Although I don't know you personally, just remember how the pendulum swings... when looking ahead with apathy based on current sadness, things have a way of coming back around and there will always be pockets of unexpected joy at other times. I enjoyed the poem, am sorry for whatever might have fueled it. By the way - that book you mentioned 'Eat, Pray, Love' was really good for me at a difficult phase. Never give up...

  13. A future beckons...and the beckoning lures you, but leaves it up to you. You need to be willing to follow into the future.

    and you will.

    love you, Saz

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
