My # 27 for National Poetry Month


there is an arid piece of land between us.

devoid of tears,

a place of struggle,

where unassailable truths

draw out jagged lines of delineation

separating the us of us.


Tears stop short,

blinded by the need to see,

accept or reject

the recognition of who we are

and who we are not.

      Definitely thought provoking. Sometimes too much analysis can destroy a relationship. Very well crafted.

      Sometimes it takes very little to begin that separation, then it cascades ever wider. Well said.

      Very profound and introspective Audrey.

      Who are we when no-ones looking, assailed by smooth and jagged thoughts alike and could the history of the protagonist in the verse prove to be the blind-spot of his or her future?

      Warm Regards;

      R.Q.

      Indeed our egos and self pride can create that distance....

      You are going to need a vacation for poetry month. I do not see anyone else trying to ring emotion from their souls on a daily basis. That is much to challenging.
