    "We both know what the black stars hide".
    It could be two people sharing a special bond and their darkest secrets. The raw wounds on the knees indicates that a lot of praying has taken place. Time and humankind can be deceitful. Some cherish the memories others move on like nothing ever happened.
    Being open and honest is very important and often connected with tears. You ended perfectly. Add to my favorite.

    Judging comment

    I really love and admire Karla's formatting within this piece. It brings this poem to life..

    For me, it goes in depth of a woman's heart, detailing thoughts and memories.

    The nature tones are what makes this poem stand out and bring it to life.

    The visual display and word usage is outstanding!

    The ending stanza is what clenched this piece.. the emotion is felt word for word. As a writer, the closing can be very emotional and Karla expressed these emotions to a tee. Just a lovely piece!!

    If i could for one single moment,
    stop the process of being swallowed
    by time,
    i would be a baby in her ever open arms again:
    she made me think i was a butterfly.
    she made me think i could be
    whoever i wanted to be as long as
    i believed.

    ^^This part here just sucked the breath out of me. Its like I'm re-living the episode with my mother..

    Its heart breaking to see our mother in this condition. From start to end the stanzas are so vivid and so pulling it just takes the reader into your world.

    There is so much more in this poem and I can feel the sadness penned within it...take care.

    Congrats on the Win.
