A Day Scar Drama Premiere Contest Winner

Soundly you sleep, your insides at ease. Beside you, I surge an uncharted storm of fearsome break for it thunder-threatens my own sun’s velocity melt. Your breathing is even and bears no concern, no fear or resentment squeaks to rust your dream’s churn. All my wishes wish it would; I want it to rob you, break your peace to pieces, rough up all your pleases and scatter your calm. Yesterday morn, the same ever alarm was greeted by our dual yawns. I poured your coffee, you jellied my toast, we teased about who loved the most versus who knotted our bed covers tossed. I heard the garage jerk and bolt, the squeal of reverse being forced and grinned that life so ordinary was actually a fulfilling choice. Later I chanced upon blemish, a day scar drama erasers can’t touch, time can’t discard or blow into bits a kind wind might take far. Even hours gone, with eyes closed, I cannot look away. My insides toss green, then turn blue-black. My heart is cramped and crumpled uneven, and my doubt is sure love-innocent trust will never come back. Our longtime love is not mere try or habit or lie, I know you want me at your side, so why not a plan more focused to better secret your sordid? Why carelessly litter dramatic change that my feet must step around or in? You sleep unaware of my awake seeped with betrayal: Passionately you kissed another, gifted eye smiles on the street to each other, while I was framed in the window of our local and favorite grocer. ...

Another emotional roller coaster write that creates an impact when the motive or cause for the feeling is revealed near the end. Sadly many can relate to these feelings, congrats on a premium contest trophy win, now this poem will get the exposure it deserves, (and you of course!)

Looking down at my comment a long time ago,I see I wowed this one! I think it is so relatable also because you are putting parts of yourself (from past experiences) into it. Thank goodness your current relationship is not unfaithful. Big congrats to you, Caycay.You must be so happy for the trophy win. You chose well!

Hi CayCay dear friend, I'm so very very happy that we have picked and back on track with our past sparse communication as I missed your cheerful, charming character! You must have won a contest or POTD for this beauty, as unhappy as it may be, such an excellent write portraying the pain of dread and betrayal - if this was true and he is still around, I'll hire mafia to come and find him! Love and hugs, Jennifer. betrayal

THE DARK THAT HIDES IN THE BETRAYAL EVER SEEKS LIGHT IN ORDER TO AMPLIFY ITS EVIL. DESTRUCTION OF LOVE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE ONE OF EVIL'S MOST CHERISHED GOALS.. FANTASTIC POEM MY FRIEND. Loved the special language used!A7

Wow again. You take us on an unexpected journey from purity and chastity to the blow in the gut betrayal. Powerful and craftily written here. (I gather the move is now behind us and things are all peachy?) Love Jannie

Another Wow and a definite fav from me. I could feel the heartache and pain in every word. The line " you sleep unaware of my awake seeped in betrayal" is very powerful! That would be agony!! Great write :)
