When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

The fractures of a fallen bridge

Sharp mind-aches control his day      
The sway of a woman is to blame      

Her memory hugs his hand      
         infiltrates his amnesia      

    Dry skin absorbs that memory
(like a sponge in the touch of water)
   until it reaches his broken limb

Those eyes sink in the absence
of an exhilaration twice stolen

Despair reaches his bones
It fractures her spirit
       It opens his eyes

She is on the same rocking chair
      misinterpreting the mess

  1. Interesante poesía Adry… y va muy bien con la foto, que sospecho también es de tu autoría. Vamos por buen camino, ¡Felicidades!

  2. Don’t we all misinterpret the mess. A human trait, I fear.

  3. This has a beautiful discordance..almost rocking along with misinterpreting the mess

  4. The sway of a woman is often to blame. 😉

  5. Love the ending to this, Adriana. Nicely written poem.

  6. Often a couple will misinterpret their partner’s feelings and you poem illustrates this well.

  7. She is on the same rocking chair misinterpreting the mess – I love the mess!
