A barren desert forms, flat

and featureless within my

loneness, clamping the fear

inside, to reside alongside

hidden, buried memories.

 

Only a patina of awareness

is required to give new life

to times and deeds reviled,

ones that spread throughout

to fill every fiber with regret.

 

Alone, no way to change

what lives under false covers

of excuses and guilt rising

to defend, only to create

the ogre that never dies.

Writers have impact, but poets TOUCH.

 

to give new life

I can SO relate, amigio mio. Thanks for writing and sharing.

This is damn good. This is one of the best of yours I have ever seen.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

I try to read PMO most days, enjoying the wits and talent of others. Sometimes, the members turn the tables on me and their praising comments give me ego, EGO. Not good for a so-called poet; his hat shrinks. Thank y'all for comments and friendship. Not many things are better to share than a poem, unless it's a drink. Salute!

No compliments without backslaps, Tater. You took away my sugar high.
