High Voltage

by Aegis   Jun 10, 2018


I'm a tampered transformer on
post surge power lines-

fated and futile.

My circuits are blown,
my cover is too;
and I'm left holding loose
ends like live wires.

    Judging comment:

    This poem is very powerful and on the contrary, the poet did express something which is hard to express even in the most powerful of words, but you have worded it so beautifully, so powerfully are your feelings expressed in few words, that 'I AM COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY' by this piece. Sometimes the hardest things we go through are of such "high voltages" that surviving is difficult, but surviving is important and living is essential. Your portrayal of feelings of pain in metaphors of power lines and wires and voltages, I knew this was going to be my pick the very first time I read it. Splendid.
