The poem(s) are below...



By allowing her to leave in haste
and miss the signal of fate’s consequence,
I  wrestle with this fumed moment…and
as knuckled hands tighten,  my quest
for closure suffocates a  hallway.

Backdoor  lightly opens…the shadow- woman
rushes down  down  iron stairways.
I clutch those quivering hands upon rails...
her sweat mixed with tears grinding on my arms,
while I taste its pain, smell  its despair. 

The pungent flavour reeks of hidden sins,
of untold confessions trapped within 
hardened pores: I wail, she wails
on the steep floor... 
and we  holler again. This need to open
what is locked from chains revolts me.
Afraid , I let go    plugging the knob
which could finally release      my false self.

Deep feeling. Too tough to follow. I had to read several times. But it attracts.

Great images. I wonder what was in the sponsor's mind with this contest. But you did extremely well. ~~

My buttons were triggered by this intense, surreal work, Ms Nette.I encountered an incident when I had to face a recurring fear and your poem just took me in.

Incredible depth, Nette. "Pungent flavour reeks of hidden sins," "tears grinding on my arms," "suffocates a hallway." These are powerful, visceral images all summed up in your last three words. Best wishes for the contest!
