"Quicksand" In the dark shadows of my mind ... memories ache from love's heartbreak lost in sweet surrender fell into the "venus fly trap" of a pretender swallowed by emotions lake a volatile earthquake In the dark shadows of my mind ... In the misty corridors of my soul ... scars exist wounded by love's kiss as passions overflowed deceived by lying seeds sowed magnetic charms drawn to false abyss a fantasy of illusions bliss In the misty corridors of my soul ... In the blackened hole of my heart ... lies destructive band of love's quicksand a pedestal crumbles; broken a veil of pain; unspoken flaming embers slowly fanned tears cascading in cupped hand In the blackened hole of my heart ...
*For SKAT'S BROKENESS Contest ...

    Dear POETESS Extraordinaire, SweetHeart of POETRYSOUP (and Me), Linda Marie, You ALWAYS write the most Amazing POEMS for A contest. I am sorry to say it is not First place but it is definetly Second, so far. I have a Question? Do all POETS that leave the SOUP take AWAY their POEMS from the site. How very SAD. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER, YOUR Silent Beau...Harry

    One my favorites. I've read quite a few here and enjoyed them all. Of the ones I chose to read were all contest submissions. Could you direct me to some of your favorites that are not contest submissions or written not specifically for a contest?

    Heart touching lines reflecting the feelings of a broken heart so well. The cunnings are always too mean, to take the feelings of innocent for ride and then breaking the emotions like a glass of jar. The soft feelings of a poet's heart must have gone deep in Christopher's nature and feelings that he has become a target of his love's cunningness. conti.Ravindra

    Talk about broken love that sunk in the quicksand. Glad to see you here and I hope you have reconsidered coming back. Miss you. Hope you had a great birthday. Mine was spent in bed and still fighting this flu. Can't seem to shake the flu this year. Catches me every time. Better start running faster eh? Hope you are doing well . love phyl
