absentee

my words have turned on me
with razor teeth
within my eyes as i read
my emotions bleed


once again my thoughts have turned
memories burn
with passing time i have not learned
and now they churn


myself has turned on me
i cannot think
so blind i do not see

regret and self-recrimination can be very destructive forces. no one is perfect, we are all walking wounded. you say a lot with an impressive economy of words here D :)

You could have said, "I didn't say it, but it sounds like me." Honest confrontation serves better, so long as you don't bleed to death. I like this dark piece. Harv

Dano, This poem is succinct in its revealing of vulnerabilities that the subject is struggling with. It's resolve reminds me of the last flicker of the candle, then the absence of light. ginga

We often feel that our words have turned to shapes blades, cutting deep the very heart of our soul. We done with great wording and structure. Olan.

Just reread what I stated and must have been sleepy or half-awake as it is missing some letters and added ‘esses’ to the words (I usually drop ‘esses’ instead of adding them), smile. We sometimes feel our words turn into sharp blades that cut deep into the heart of our soul, well done... sounds better, eh?

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
