flailing brittle arms, with faux bravado, fighting cold frigid sky purses thin blue lips shuts off pleas its not me!

scattering shards of my heart
~ our song plays anyway
MLM’s- what becomes of the broken hearted, Sadje’s what do you see
stay until morning curves its arms around us I will wake first and make us sugar dusted two coffees one mug If you call out my name for nothing at all I will tell the air we breathe to play for you our song If you forget me there's a note in your pocket with my number and my heart so love, we can begin again ***
dVerse’s Open Link Live hosted by Sanaa. I love Pablo Neruda’s poetry and I’m inspired by the poem she posted- if you forget me. I’m trying a poetry form suggested on MLM, a Trinet – composed of 2/2/6/6/2/2/2 words, three verses.
Cascades of thought rush from my toes, washed in ever-flowing, evanescent rivers of time. Yesterday lures my yearning heart into watching with wonder, photographs in sepia, through windows life leaves open. My logical mind wants to make connections. The cold air, the warm scent of my mother, the uncertainty of my next breath as the clutter of consciousness overwhelms the moment. By thoughts,
I am bombarded yet I stand. Still. In an attempt to be aware. Just be aware, of nothing more than the hum of the universe to soothe my soul.
dVerse Prosery hosted by Merril – “I am bombarded yet I stand” by Adrienne Rich, and for MLM’S photo prompt
