"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 ...

    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

    gosh this is so sad, Linda. I hope it's not a reflection of your own state of mind? ok, I am reading below that you based it on your son's experience. Great imagery, my friend. How goes it for you lately? Luv, Andrea

You are missed! This poem is deep and emotional. Yes, love can be prickly, harsh... life <-- never easy.

This is an awesome and outstanding write! I love your piece of art completely! Shows off your extreme talent in wonderment and awe! Awesome Work!!

    Oh Linda, this poem is absolutely breathless. I'm speechless by your divine talent. I'm so sorry to hear that your son Christopher had a break up with a long time girlfriend. Love can really hurt but new luv will definitely come his way again. So lovely to see you here. Love always, Gail
