    AROUND




    LOOK,

    where tufted cushions

    cover scar-marks

    never mentioned.

    Well-intentioned

    were the one-offs

    uttered, out of hearing

    range. Strange, to

    TURN,

    between extremes

    of day’s abuses

    where excuses

    burn a silent

    tongue, timid

    to rebuttal of relief.

    Grief held mute.

    BEEN,

    without consoling

    on a rolling

    coaster ride.

    Hiding from

    success of knowing

    yesterday is over.

    No return.

    STILL

    no lonely highway

    marks tomorrow. Even

    sorrow needs a holiday.





    Note: I couldn't get this to format as I'd hoped, i.e. with each successive stanza from 1-4 being indented, and then reversing the process from stanzas 5-8. After a couple of tries I gave up and just centered it. On a different note, I'm experimenting, wanting to use the title as a word able to follow (but not actually doing so) each capitalized word in the poem. I'm open to responses on how that worked. I'm not interminably sad or anything, these were the first words that fitted themselves here for use.

    This is a touching write. Eager to hear others points of “view”

      Thanks Bobby. Seems like forever since I've written anything new. How are things in your neck of the woods?

    Hi Paula, I myself tried to post a new Collaboration poem the other day and admin would not authorize. Don’t understand why.

      Me neither, but it's done now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
