Treachery - a poem

Updated on June 8, 2012


The rug pulled off,
from under the feet,
reeling under the whirlwind,
of adversity,
face stuck in the mire,
hands torn and bleeding,
from gravel intrusion,
sharply penetrating,
fleshly tenderness,
bleeding, hurting!
Staring at the jagged edges,
tainted ruby red,
with life’s flow,
scrambling, crawling,
fending off the dirt,
with rock entrenched palms,
softly soothing,
scraped knees,
and elbows,
scarred by the blows,
life dealt.
Back on my feet,
head held high,
in the knowledge,
that life isn't about falls,
but about those times,
I picked myself up from,
the miry clay.
Face upturned,
to let the healing rain wash away,
the pain and the filth,
while I put back,
the pieces of life within,
and get ready to soar,
the heights, hitherto,
To fly away into the horizon,
fade into oblivion,
from this realm to another,
where life starts afresh!

To my Readers who have been my strength and support.. I thank you all from my heart... I may not be here so often.. this may be my swan's song.. my flight into oblivion... ...

I may just drop in once in a while to express myself... but between those times.. It may just be Goodbye! Thanks for being a blessing!

      Something is wrong. Your poetry is dark, not like you. I will miss you if you go, maybe tomorrow will be brighter. I know we were just cyberfriends, but i really felt a connection..God Bless you...

      If you truly are leaving then I will miss you. I will miss your gentleness of character. I will miss the beauty that you bring into my life with your words. I will me the love of writing that you exhibit in each of your works.

      I am thankful to have been able to read your beautiful work and I sense a heart broken and possibly your departure from the Hubs. I hope this passes in time and that you reconsider staying. However if you do leave, I will always look forward to your fond hellos and visits. This was a beautiful poem, well done as always.
