Brenda, this is absolutely amazing and powerful and so liberating!! I truly adore this piece by you- it made me smile and nod and sorta raise my fist in the air and want to scream "you go girl!"
"I took my playbook
of self regret,
doused it with gas
and lit that b**** up.
scooping up the ashes
I headed out to sea
where I scattered them
into the deep,
never ever wanting them
to wash ashore
for a devious siren
to use against me..."
Ren, thank you so much! It was about time I buried the past, lol. Its a whole lot easier living when you aren't weighed down by past regrets. I'm so glad you liked this! Hugs! P.s. thank you so much for the nomination- that really means a lot.
I absolutely love this piece Brenda and I so can relate. I agree the older we get the wiser we get and we start paying attention to what is truly important. All that other stuff is history. All the very best and hugs
A metaphor rich poem but this one is my favourite. It is so brutal and has such obvious anger and a real determination not to succumb and be the victim.
Well done on this and I'm glad it's nominated; I'm all out!
Hi back to You! Thank you so much. I think we should all do some house cleaning, it's very freeing...

From start, till the end.
After reading this, I am Finally at peace too. It means nothing left in my heart except love.
I am sure whosoever has read this poem would have learned more than 2-3 things from it.
