El Esqueleto-The Skeleton


The heart bleeds

Soaking up the waters of blood red,

Yet, what lies within,

Is nori, something wonderful,

Instinctual and primitive.


White wash of innocence

Breaks up a doubting soul,

Swimming through a red sea,

Focused on self-reliance.

Source


Let the arms rise and sink, in sync,

Set sights on

Honesty, givingness and learning,

Dedications to begin with.


Cactus on land,

You are no lover of mine

When I look at you,

I see suffocation and strife,

I yearn for space.


Your spines stand tall
Your spines stand tall | Source


Your prickly spines stand tall,

Pushing others away,

I know thorny issues lie below,

All the sorrow and unhappiness,

Between a man and a woman.


Now I am,

A floating board of charcoal,

Stripped down of

Vitality, power and significance,

Bare bones rattling a tune.


Stripped bare. Bare bones rattling a tune.
Stripped bare. Bare bones rattling a tune. | Source


Loss and change,

Strut and strum,

The guitara’s chords,

Yet, feel and see above,

A four-leaf clover.



Resolutions and solutions on their way,

Protection against wrong doings,

Healing the soreness and tiredness,

Finding the country road within,

Finding the heart within my country.

Find the country road within, means to find

See results

      I am glad the poll didn't influence your own personal understanding of the poem, eric. All the best to your loved ones.

      A part of me is conflicted as to whether include a poll or not when I create poetry because within it I put out my ideas or views and I would prefer the reader to uncover(whatever that may be or not be) his/her own interpretation of the poem.Do you think its better or worse to include the poll capsule?

      Im glad you enjoyed this poem Tim.

      An interesting poem opening my heart to your poetic voice seeking to discover your discoveries shared with the readers. I voted other because I thought it was all plus some a result of what was awakened by the presented verse.

      Im attracted to the Spanish language. I hope to be able to speak it one day.

      I also hope to write poems about the more inspiring and aspiring rather than the conflictual.

      I appreciate you stopping by to read my poetry. All the best to you Jodah.

      The name of this poem drew me in, ThreeKeys, and I enjoyed the content as well. Good job.
