Fruitless Cycles

retched, a stomach twisting curdle
sour, the bile that rises from malcontent
tearful, yet, tears are futile, a waste of water
understanding seems never to come or come too late
all one can do is suck it up and try to love again

    Painful experiences when it comes to love are not so easy to get over..Great work expressing the idea..If for a contest, reads like winning material to me.Enjoyed reading the expressive and emotive work..Thanks for stopping by..Mostly I do write my works in a notebook first..I don't know if anyone in the future could read them though..Sara

    Yes, this is the thing to do. Wallowing in self pity wont help any, got to rise and spread your wings again.

    Wow.......I love that this ends with at least a bit of reality and hope! But yes.......this is real from the gut of many who have been disappointed, discouraged and fed up with love. (It's never too late, however, I hear even Martha Stewart has joined an on-line dating service to match her up with the "perfect" man!! yikes....poor guy, what is he in for??

    Dear Debbie, my name is Phillip Rollings (Flipper to my friends and you are my friend. Does Chef call you "Light and Love Deborah" I hope so because he gave me a list of 30 poets to write to and Light and LOVE Deborah was on that list There are no Deborahs on the Cummunity Builders list where he said I would find you If you read his last post or the blog he asked me to write then this comment will make more sense. He will be home Sat. Soup mail Respectfully Flipper

    Last two lines image the real emotion by counter attacking from the first line. Something different. Loved always, bl

    I double checked with the judge on how he accepts the form as being laid out, MY ABC poem starts with R, S, T, U & ends with any letter and was meant to put forth an emotion. Really this is a much less restrained way to do the form it's a bit boring always starting A,B,C,D..aye?

    YOu really got across the emotion of this one, Debs!

    I love the emotion and word images. I can't parse the form though, at least in this variation. Cheers, Roy
