I fared under the caricature
Of desolate bane this eve –
Walking with shiver in pocket
Toward the glassiness of now –

As I reached the tip of today
Drenched I was, in disgust –
Saturated with concocted sweat
I gripped tirelessly, the shiver –

Poured the shock of yesterday
Through forgotten cloud –
As I quivered under the dry
Of pouring dry rains –

My eyes swelled silently shut
From the lack of tears this eve –
My shiver, it completely melted
From the glassiness of now –

    Congratulations Deborah, on your first place win. You have masterfully conveyed with words, emotional pain of such intensity, it numbs the soul and freezes the tears inside leaving the soul unable to cry it out. WELL DONE! Lainie
