barflypoet & author of dark fiction


It’s time for the ‘What Pains You Project.’ I listen privately to your pain and write an anonymous poem dedicated to you…

 

‘part of her wishes’

 

a handful of caterpillars

snug in the palm

she doesn’t clench her fist

until deep in the night

she’s alone.

 

alone—wishing she was

with him

on a day they could call

their own.

 

she has nothing.

no days. no cloudless skies.

 

she holds open her palm

wishing moon for sun

wishing he for him

 

closing her eyes she exhales

lost in metamorphosis.
