Yes it’s true

holding on too tight even when they ask you to

causes eels to revert back to nature

and seek to wriggle free

you said

hold me so tight I cannot escape

I found I was

even when I didn’t know it

never good at sharing

imagining you the idol of another

I felt your place was with me

that was wrong wasn’t it?

you were a bird in a cage

I didn’t have the key

it was down your throat

stopping you from singing

and when the storm came

you coughed up all your metal

and turned it on me

I must say

you sounded beautiful

as you flew

far beyond us both

  1. A beautiful heart touching and soul seeking writing. Once again, you give us the space to meditate on your writing as we think about ourselves and people we know. Your gift is very special! A poem like this when reflected upon allows the reader to go their own way with their own personal meditation. Thank you! Your poetry is so much more than just reading if one realizes what you are offering!

  2. Loss is such a difficult thing to write about in any original sense, but I think you’ve gone and done just that right here. Wow. This is a poem I wish I’d written. Especially the part about the key. 🙂

      1. Aww shucks don’t make me blush C, 🙂 but you are a sweet friend as well and for that I thank you tremendously from the bottom of my heart. I don’t connect with many but you are one of the few I consider a true friend. One of the reasons being is you liked the show vikings like I did ha, and the other well you are a good hearted person. By the way are you a virgo? Because I am and you seem like one
