"Fragments"

Updated on August 23, 2017

Jazz

"There was Jazz music playing in the background,

Trumpets and trumbones.

I heard the bittersweet melody of the saxophones.

But it was not a happy day

it was my dying day.

on these streets of new orleans,

my murderer was watching me."

Tear

"A lonely TEAR fell down her face,

she longed for his embrace,

but all she now had left

was a torn and fading photograph."


Stone Angel (Angel turning into stone)

Stone Angel

"Touch without collision",

it is a given,

how the mind can react,

to fiction or to fact.

When all the pieces come undone,

visions of the sun.

When all the stars align,

distance without time.

I chase a faltering dream,

into the unseen,

unto the unknown,

where angels turn to stone.

      Nikki, I noticed you don't have amazon ads on your hubs. I presume you are not getting income there. Your writing is really great! I wonder are you in the Hub Ad system. Please join if not as you are getting good reads and many comments from lots of hubbers, your comment rate is higher than the average...sign of a helluva good writer.... I am just sayin'! :)

      Nikki, this is stunningly good poetry here. Whew! I love how you make up the wonderful scenario in the image, like an event happening and it's opened to us...so cool!

      I love Angels...sometimes I feel I am surrounded by them and they are invisibly watching me and helping and nurturing in some mysterious way....they can be so enigmatic, and then hidden in plain sight...they can seem ordinary, but they can be magical...and the ordinariness is just to throw us off the scent... :) Brilliant writing. I am a fan so much!

      Lonely Jazz tune playing on the air.

      Can't help but wonder if dying from despair.

      So many eyes, they watch from everywhere

      Which is the one, that takes my life so fair

      .

      .

      Did you hear. They found her all alone, having died ... from despair.

      It was the saddest sight, they said, "no compare"..

      For clutched in her beautiful young hands

      A yellowed streaked photo, as if it cried with her, a tragedy not so rare..

      .

      .

      I saw her in the light, a vision of great might

      Yet crumbled her endearing sight

      By love and loss unshared

      An angel too can feel great pain

      when clocks deceive and prey

      A longing for a simple thing

      A touch of no compare

      It is the most deep tragic thing

      To see such love as stone

      For it is the land of mortal ones

      That destroys such gifts and loves as such

      A vision now of timeless stone and lessons of despair
