My #22 for National Poetry Month



light bulbs flicker,

unattended, wink out


darkness is a blanket

where i hide my face

unsee the distance

between us


it could be miles, or inches

neither matters

as i fall into

the space behind my eyes.


when the light flickers on

you will be gone again.


loose connections seem to be our way now.

      Great illustration. Difficult to see a light bulb after this and not think how its light relate to the relationship.

      I love the way you connect loose connections with the light bulb. I can relate. You are a whizz at unrelenting feelings in poetry...

      Hi Audrey - I see a lot of sadness pressed into this small space.

      An imaginative poem closely related to life. Our life is fickle and is flickering like a light bulb. Thanks for sharing.

      Beautiful imagery for a lonely feeling that many have experienced.
