The Waiting_ZemotionZemotion

I press the water

From my veins

These unshed tears

Will not dilute me.

Mourning settles into

Vanishing dreams.

Though clumsy

The swing is true,

An axe falling helter-skelter

Through a glass moon.

Whenever your ghost lands

I will listen.

Your name shatters

At my diaries’ precipice.

Though your utter mention

Rubs me raw,

I will not relinquish the sky,

These consequences,

The price of breathing

In a room ten sizes too small.

    1. Oh wow thank you what a huge compliment! I actually have all the poems for the next book and bet I could find the material for additional books. I love writing but unfortunately I don’t love editing lol

      1. Ohhh, yes–editing, not the best part of the creative journey. You could just hire an editor, if you’re really brave. The mere thought gives me hives…

      2. A fellow writer edits for me but I still have to reread everything over and over and organize the book itself and theoretically market it. I get really overwhelmed in that process with my insecurities and such

      3. It sounds overwhelming indeed, regardless of insecurities or lack thereof. I must be just plain lazy…maybe that’s why somebody thunk up blogging?

  1. “An axe falling helter-skelter/Through a glass moon.” Haunting imagery; haunting poem. I will carry.”The price of breathing/In a room ten sizes too small.” with me.

  2. Full of emotion. Not being dilluted by unshed tears is an important line to me. Because that is exactly what unshed tears will do to you. It takes strength to let go and release.

      1. The house was full of ghosts. The main character was trying to dispel that ghosts existed. One of the ‘sensitive’ people was a little girl who ended up ‘saving’ most of the people who became trapped. The main character… ended up becoming one of the ghostly residences. So you don’t have to look through… πŸ™‚
