"Moments devour us ever since we have been speaking a language we don't understand... we, like stale wine, evaporate into parallel lives cutting dialogues into pieces of shards that taint life’s mirror, red-berried and tone-deaf. In splinters of broken syllables, my flesh walks on thin glass as words are splattered on cut edges, unheard in din of nights crashed on frames of near bethrotal...allowing me to favor another who gifts me with respect. While disdain explodes in your eyes, you stare at him with blood-stone ire my breath dares to will stark truth. Leave then, before stars ache ..please do not answer back." Charles Haigh Wood, Isaiah Zerbst's Contest by nette onclaud

    Invigorating! You took a brave leap, branching out into new trails of poetry. The last stanza was firm, smooth, and gently hard-hitting!

    Beautiful picture of hidden heart feelings worded nicely. Very difficult to pass those moments and hot takes its nest in to mind. Well done. Good luck in the contest. Loved always, bl
