A beautiful mirror

-Escape of the mountain-

Do you care about my breast?
The new curve - countryside corset. 
The beauty of every summer dress 
Laying down, wearing out gravity 
Embracing the same feeling; Your
hands indulged in. Passion and devotion, 
around perfumed scenery... 
     The perfect pair

Today we will pray,
Counting every second on the clock 
No longer the womanly figure before'
I will possess a new battle, 
around the virtues of my palace.

-Will you still be there, 
  when the hump and lump are gone?
-Will I still be the queen of your heart?
Patiently I shall wait and see, 
 in hopes to gain the time, breast cancer stole 
Leaving behind torn tissue, with a daily reminder of;
The one that got away.

A Focus on Breast Cancer

So beautifully expressed in relation to cancer warriors. They are more beautiful because they fight the disease with bravery and a smile on their face. Loved it :)

I hope your ex-mother-in-law is having a happy life now. There are special bras she can wear. I have seen them in the bra department. I have enjoyed this poem.

Very endearing and honest poem, PD. Such a relevant issue in regards to the strains it puts on a relationship. It tests the bonds that keep two people together. Is it more than just skin deep, our love for each other. The questions posed in this poem alone is gold worthy. Love and joy to you and yours.

A lot of emotion in this power packed piece. The internal wondering, the questions are so poignant while the strength of your words are of resilience and hope. A great support you are with great courage by your former mother-in-law. Thank you for sharing, I send many blessings to you both, lynn

This is very touching Linda..Breast cancer is taking toll on my small island too. Its sad...but I think at time the more important thing is to learn to accept things. Your m. in law is very courageous and you very supportive, I must say...great write, I'm sure she loved that! :D

Very well written! Much here to think about, how one never knows what tomorrow will bring, and the necessity for deeper love if to have tender comfort during such trials. Profound read.

Lovely one Linda , the words bring out both the pride and anguish of what breasts can bring and cancer can take away. Its so painful hearing nowadays so many close ones getting cancer the increase is alarmingly frightening to say the least.

Hi Destroyer A, What a wonderful poem. The doctor said 1 in 8 women will get this despicable disease. It has caught our family by surprise. I encourage all to get regular mammograms. It is never too early to start getting them. Your poem has captured many of the emotions that go along with breast cancer. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work. Best wishes, JP

I like that you touched on the subject matter of breast cancer. I think as poets it's our job to talk about current events and deliver important messages through our art.
