WALLPAPER

WALLPAPER

---------------------
Paper Thin
Cut down to any size,
Crumble, crop me wrong 
Pull the insulation from my heart.
Never will I be "A Paper Doll!"
Thank you for calling me a "Friend!"
Thank you for wasting  my "time!"
Enjoy the WALLPAPER display
---------------------

Layers and layers of lifeless brick, 
KEEPS EVERYTHING OUT! 
Emotional poster boards of doubt 
Envious fiberglass green never seen
Yuletide Carols warped around my energy
Merry and full of acrylic sh!t-
Hand full of putty maintains the makeup on my face
Arts and crafts display my inner fancy grace
Heavy installed Sheetrock so easily replaced

Tough paint chips away silently through the night
Rigid boards transform into fragile crystal light
The greatest illusion blinding reality 
Smooth Tiger Skin, texture of orange simple peel  
Beautiful mud swirl, L'Oreal.
Gypsum soft enough you want to touch

Dark walls of a thousand words
A plasterboard of discordant grey notes
Blots and clots of ink, slave my skin  
Colorless drywall, resilient to your charms  

Printed designs of cleverly decorated lipstick 
Morbid shadows underneath the ceiling veil
A double coat of Pacific Waterproof Blue-
Printing bags from -- YESTERDAY!

Plastered wounds of cement dries and roughens along the edge
A human made barrier not even God comes in.

    Yes and the wall protects us from the world, but then the only enemies we have left are guilt, denial, depression, the list goes on, but ultimately it means our own mind becomes the greatest enemy. Great work.

    shades of bog on the old cars hide, shiny still as off she rides, a coat of jam until, she shines brightly still, no head on suicides,,, the thrill, denied... love it p.d. babe...

    Smile, Whom Can With Stand, `His King Of Kings` ~ Knocking Upon Your Beauty's Door ? Surely, I Think Not; When `Glory` Shall Just, Go Where `Majestic` Wills * Blink ~ The Power Of Words; Shall They Shape The Heart We Find ? As I Was Reading Zachariah Last Night My Spirit Rejoiced As Feeling The Power In `Our Father's` Words * Self-Fulfilling Prophecies ? Because Their Lack In, Faith, `Heaven's Messiah,` Could Do Very Few Wonders, There.... 'I Love Your Poetry, Beautiful Linda;' Always So Rich In Creativity Originality As, Of Profound ~ Love John

    A cocoon of sorts perhaps even a chrysalis. A place to grow and mature into a butterfly. How sad it is that we can't all find this place of comfort. ~Kilmer

    An awesome, well put together piece, Linda...choice rhyming too. Deep and colorful verse! I'm doing well, my friend. Thanks for being kind. Hope all is well! Always, Annalise

    Very deep write its hard not to keep those walls up with all the hate in this world. Congrats on ur top poem. Loved it.

    WoW! I have my dark, believe me, and this poem resembles, somewhat, all the barriers I erected those two lost decades. have written about them from time to time, but I doubt if I put as much energy into it as this poem emits. Wonderful!

    This is a very dramatic write Linda. Yes we have layers upon layers and layers where light does not come in at our darkest times but we have rice paper where light does shine . awesome. love phyl

    Another very thought provoking write on this difficult to deal with subject. Awesome metaphor. Favorite line "Merry and full of acrylic sh!t-". Sure feels that way sometimes :)

  1. Date: 11/5/2013 10:23:00 AM

    Very deep and thought provoking. Extremely well written. And great job again in conveying the mood of the surroundings.

  1. Date: 11/4/2013 7:26:00 AM

    I love your very dramatic and emotional poem. Brilliant. Best wishes Linda x

    Hey girl, are you sure about that "not even God comes in"? He comes in anywhere. I love your trail of thoughts - hold one's attention. I've been neglecting my friends here at the Soup - guilty as charged :). You're making me realize that! Thanks :). Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Love ya, Toquyen

    Kind of enigmatic. Are you using wallpaper as a metaphor for your resilience? You are the most widely read poet on the site! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Dearest!!! Such a creative interspersal of thought----not, however, surprised! Love how your improve stays in touch with the melody. Perhaps we can sand the rough edges now that it has dried.---but why--edges make the journey a challenge!

    I loved the intense emotions throughout this poem. The ending with God was a brilliant way to end this poem. Outstanding work -Eman
