Vacancy

by Melpomene   Feb 9, 2016


Before now,
there was a vacancy in my
belly. Wars were fought there,
ships slain in the sea of my
naval and rock paintings told the
truth of how my organs were
massacred when I was a
young girl.

    This is another powerful piece from you and can possibly be interpreted in different ways by the many people that read it.
    I interpret it that you have had some really rough times throughout your childhood that you are just trying to get over but it's difficult because of the times you have had.
    I also interpreted as something happening that stopped you from doing things you wanted.

    As I say many interpretations that only you could possibly know the true meaning of.

    All in all a wonderful write. Em

    Mel- I dont know how you do it, but you do... You create masterpieces.

    this piece takes me on several angles of messages. Turbulent female wars within the female body, possible birth or renewal... I just dont' know, my head is spinning and I had to highlight this piece!

    Another intriguing write from you Mel. I always try to decepher your metaphors but normally I fail miserably haha!! I think this could be about a disruption in your younger years that left you traumatized for a long time. Something that left a void in your life hence your title and, the 'sea' is just now settling...not sure but still a lovely write.

    Can you check the word 'slayed' I'm not sure but I think it should be slain?

      Hi Hellon, you hit the nail on the head about a disruption. I've changed slayed to slain, I actually had slain at the start but began to question myself after researching on the net. Thanks for pointing it out!
