Poetry Corner ~ Calling all POETS :-)
Calling all POETS!!
I've decided this will be a regular weekend event on Saturday's because I LOVE poetry and want to share this passion with others.
Here is my submission this week...
The scented candles fill the room with jasmine and a warm glow; the flames are dancing to a beat only my ears can hear,
I’ve poured myself a glass of red wine and the exotic mixture of natures bounty teases my tongue both sweet and bitter; mirroring life,
My thoughts turn to you and my longing for love and acceptance bears down on me, almost too much to endure,
I wish you were here even if it was just to hold me to reassure me that I’m real to someone other than myself,
But your are not and silence is my only response it mocks me within these walls turning the emotional void I’m feeling into a physical ache,
I have to remind myself that this isn’t your fault, it's just so much easier to accept when I can blame someone else,
Bitter tears roll down my face followed by manic laughter for my chest,
Helping me to unwind and unravel the knot that has formed at my core, allowing me to continue to breathe at least for awhile.
