Clouded

So sad but yet so simply and beautifully said. The accompanying image is perfect too! It and the poem make me think of the phrase “being put out to sea”. Thanks for sharing, Deborah! ❤

Light Motifs II Thursday Inspiration #17 – Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction.  This week’s theme is faded and the picture is below.

Thursday Inspiration

faded, forgotten

by the love she had trusted

heart clouded in pain

The Moon Shone

Untitled

If only the window would break
so I could fall away
from this midnight distress
of heavy breathing
laden with bourbon

If only I was not petrified
of what could
happen next
of what might
be my agony

If only this man
kept his hands
and his mutterings
of his wife’s failings
to himself

If only I was bigger
stronger
less frightened
when his hand clamped
down on me so hard

If only I was older
and knew what to do
beyond shaking
smiling glazed
and going numb

If only the moon
didn’t highlight
the deed
whitewash the evil
occurring below

If only the moon could save me

Shame On Us

Untitled

the greatest stories
ever told are the deceptions
given in bland kisses
by the wretched liars

there’s no care
there’s no real love
there’s just an agenda
theirs comes first

what’s at stake
is what they get from you
furthering their goals
gets them one step closer

what’s at stake
is what you give them
being taken for granted
loses you your soul
