I sang a song

I sang a song and wrapped

it in feathers; dutifully delivered

it to your door, in the hope

to see you dance.

I decanted the contents in

harmony with a red bow

on my chest – left no note untouched as

lyrics fell out

all over the carpet; staining your fabric

with a glitter, in my eyes.

But mine are mine and yours saw

cement

as you looked down upon my

creation; confusing double

entendres

with tunnel vision – no longer

hearing the music that I made

as you tossed down your own words

dipped in a sticky, sarcastic blood.

Blood of us

spattered over chorus and verses

subduing melodic love to silence.

I never expected to witness such

a massacre, here

on your doorstep

and have been doing my own dance

for rain

ever since.

  5. Your imagery is really good, meaningful and deep. I like the end especially bringing in the rain dance. The feathers in the beginning also tie into the theme. Thanks for your gift to us readers!

  7. Hi again….You know I read all of your posts…..but this one is really good. The imagery is magnificent. The words laced first with love then vile deceit. Metaphors filled with optimism then despair. Two disparate visions of the same thing. It reminds us that we see what we want to see.
    I love your work….
