Wow. Man, just wow.
I don't know how you managed to take something that I thought was too cliche to write about and turn it into this mesmerizing, beautiful, beautiful poem!
Look at the lines and how they flow in each stanza, even in the syllable count, and the way they give a visual image to the reader.
This is lovely. I absolutely love it and do hope it gets the weekly win!
Thank you for writing this. I truly enjoyed it. Amazing writing.
This took me back to a sad time in my life,
Oh to be honest I feel my life has always been a bit sad,
But I feel in these moments it molds us into who we are as a person and as writer's....this is such a powerful piece.. well done
This is a stunning piece of poetry...each and every stanza paints a picture that is really quite dire to me, the reader. Favourite (although it was extremely difficult to pick).
I am tired of walking
on those letters I wrote for you;
drinking illness of questions in empty nights;
recycling my thoughts to prevent them from shriveling
and looking for me in the lyrics of the songs
in your head right now.
