Photo Challenge #67 “See-Saw” and Wordle #156

Seesaw Alexa Houghton

Alexa Houghton

My porcelain heart

Swears beneath the strain

Of an oppressive balance.

The ground is never long

From the sky and limbo

Is intrinsic to doubt.

A decision by default

Is the heaviest to bare.

Scars feed my wrists

Tumbling from moonlit flesh

As a chant and no one

Can absolve my pain

However, gaudy

However, brief

Their concern

Though I am grateful

Just the same.

I shuffle the papers

Of countless diaries

The timeline slipping

From earth’s turnings.

As deep as the ocean

It cannot taste

The saline it ensnares.

  1. So much in this one (as usual)–I especially loved the lines “a decision by default is the heaviest to bare”. And I noted, “scars feed my wrists”…

  2. Too much salt. Too many tears. One would thing a body could run out of them… and yet the ocean is full.

    Thanks for your prompts and thanks for your visits.
