Hide

The things which mar us, scar us
leave creases in the skin
these repetitive rutting’s
necessary?
One wonders. 

Would that we bend like the willow branch,
curl like the twining vine
yet, perhaps we do?

Slouched-shouldered,
rounding inward to hide our hovering hearts.
Turtle-necked without the shell to sink,
pigeon-toed with eyes downcast
perhaps, we have morphed
contorted
without our knowledge
as minute by minute
we knuckle under
to life.

    I really like this one Debbie, I am not a great lover of free verse mainly because I don't understand the rules behind it but this gets to me . Thanks xx

    Yes, we do that..Some of those postures are just aging but some express what is going on inside..Enjoyed reading this morn..Thanks for stopping by..I don't get to see Karter but one day a week mostly..I can see changes in him every week..When he had to have that tumor removed from his nose, he had a set back in being able to trust..He is just getting over that..Sara

    YOU... NEVER! Maybe at times you get close...as i think we all do. But look at you...So beautiful...you just wouldn't look this good...if you weren't the fighter i think you are! Yes ...Father time wins in the end...but i know you'll go... with your head up, and shoulders back....because you've got CLASS...you ARE Class!

    UGH. LOL. Just read what I wrote. This poem doesn't JUST worry me. Sheesh. It's awesome, I really liked the turtle necked. This is one of the first times I paid more heed to the EMOTION and less to the CRAFT. :) Perhaps I'm too close to the subject... off I go to bed. It's almost midnight. I wrote some fluff tonight. It was actually nice to write fluff. May bring me fluffy dreams and ... crap, she's waking...

    You have been on my mind most of today... I had my fingers, toes, eyes crossed. Things go okay? Soup, email or call if you need me or just wanna an ear. This poem only worries me more. HUG Dee...
