Quiet, but not Wordless


Rose Sketch

you can
see the look
in my red-rimmed eyes,
you can see
how I

wait for
me to tell
you when to reach for
my broken mind
and shattered

is no
more than what
you see in the dusky,
starless, inky night
in my

assured, I
shall find a
way to light the pitch
with flame so
warm it

  1. Like the imagery throughout, but especially in the last stanza.

      I have been trying to decide which one I like best. Not sure if it is three or four, although I had to have liked four well enough. I ended with it 😉

  2. A nicely written poem
    Red, I like the imagery
    of the rose that has no
    colouring, I guess this
    speaks volumes for a
    poem of this nature…

    Have a very nice rest of
    evening my great friend 🙂

      I am not often moved to add my own drawings to anything online, but when I discovered this poem hidden in a book today, I could not resist adding it to the post. It is drawn on the paper with the poem. 😉

      • I think that your rose defines the poetic significance for this one my great friend and as it holds a personal feeling to it, then it also means a great deal more for the reader, especially if one recognises the meaning of this piece of poetry…

        Have a very nice rest of evening Red 🙂
