Tiny Fractures of Death

As the clock ticks on,
the soul
tiny fractures of death

hairline cracks
seemingly invisible, superficial
yet they run deep

    What a poignant piece my dear Nikko. It reminds me of my mortality! But please read my next poem: "When We Are Old" My couch have been so comfortable lately. I have not even clicked on any contest yet! Missed you! Love Dalila

    Living close to the edge - so delicate. Your layout gives this fine piece drama. Love, daver

    This is a very serious one from you, Nikko. A powerful one. Such great free verse style you have!

    Your line breaks make the whole poem so much more effective! Good job!

    Reminds me of writing "The little deaths inside" last year. But your ending has more of the "Bohemian Rhapsody" feel to it. That's why you have to make yourself some soul-armour - unfortunately people hope someone will make it for them....doesn't quite work like that though. Enjoy the formatting here to boot. I have always enjoyed the visual aspect of poems. Btw - yeah, that is a tanka at the beginning of my recent poem - sort of a tanka haibun. Thanks for noticing. I hid the other forms more.
