NaPoWriMo Day 2 Poem – Love Shattered

This poem was a collaboration between my friend Michael over at Morphetroad and myself. He is a wonderful poet. Go ahead and visit him and see what I mean. He has been gracious enough to say yes to my request to help me when needed. Oh boy, he might regret that one! Ha!

The poem might be a tad dark, which is unusual for me, but that’s how it turned out and I thought it was quite good even with the darkness. I couldn’t have done it without Michael’s help.

This is day 2 of NaPoWriMo, hope you enjoy. Please comment as I love them all! Thank you!

Love Shattered

The Seven-Twenty whistles by,

Wistfully I try to recall the whistle tone,

But I cannot, my heart is elsewhere.

Your cruel words last night

Have ripped my heart and mind,

I cannot think straight

And so oblivious of reality

I watch in a Dreamscape

Flashes of better days

Loving arms, smiles,

Past happiness now rejected

No subtlety in the slap

That resounded in my world.

Love shattered,

Fallen pieces litter my path

Each step an effort, as I drag my loveless self,

Through the motions of living.

Never far from me is your image,

The rage, the terror, the carnage.

I reached out you were not there,

Instead a monster answered back.

Voices unheard before, cutting, slashing,

Leaving me gutted, desolate, sleepless.

Now I need inner strength,

To alone, find peace,

Solitude, safety, myself.

A whistle resonates in the distance,

Now to lose myself as if to the wind.

The Seven-Twenty goes by.

A New Thing From Me

napofeature4

 

 

Hello people!

You see that banner up there? Yeah the nice red one that says NaPoWriMo 2014? That’s the one! It’s National Poetry Writing Month.

Guess what? I am doing something absolutely crazy for me and joining in this month! Yeah, the woman who keeps saying I don’t do poetry.

I am doing a whole month of poetry! Me! Ahhhhh!!!!

I think I have lost my mind people. So I’m hoping you will take pity on me and be gentle when you read my stuff this month. Please?

So as the banner says, I’m diving in, just hope the pool is not empty and I crack my head open on the bottom.

Here is my first effort this month. Just 29 more to go. Ha-ha!

 

NO APRIL FOOL’S JOKE

Stepping out from behind my wall,

My stories of fiction and such will have to wait

To do poetry all month-long is now my fate

I don’t know if I’m crazy or  what,

But I’m going for it and I hope I won’t be late

It will look pretty bad if I fall on my face

Not to mention hurt my pride as well

I will have to rely on peoples good grace

I have a friend who promises to help

As I go on all month-long

He is well versed in prose and such

And a brave soul  as well

So here I go my readers, my friends

My first real effort this month

And know this is no April’s fool joke

As I put myself out there for all to poke
