    Worn out pages sit

    Filled with emptiness like me

    Hold me how he did

    Tell me why he sings

    In melody so solemn

    When he’s so gorgeous

    I find ease in the constant change

    New buildings around each corner

    A crane lifting a piece of scaffolding

    Like Jenga with higher stakes

     

    My favorite building was torn down yesterday

    I had […]

  • Why do we all fight

    Over who is wrong and who is right

    ?

     

    Why do we find something to pick apart

    Are we dooming ourselves from the very start

    ?

     

    Was life ever normal

    Or were we just a […]

  • Dip a finger in the melted wax

    Cool on your finger, hardening

    Fire is dancing

    A cigarette lit from flame

     

    He once told me that smoking is the most

    Intimate you can get with fire

    Swirling in […]

    • gorgeous imagery. I have a phobia of fire, so it’s nice to see it imagined in a different way like this!

    • Your ability to paint a scene with words is admirable. The smoking description and the candle in the old wine bottle were really poignant for me.

  • Do you think ocean animals commit murder?

    Do they s(t)eal?

    So much unknown

    And yet we walk around so confident

    So unafraid

     

    The mysteries that lie beneath the surface

    Is there a justice […]

    • Interesting poem. The ending is particularly effective. I love the imagery of becoming fish food, and “we never asked the right question” is a fabulous – almost haunting – accusation. Great job!

  • voldecurt wrote a new post, Easter 1 week, 2 days ago

    My family was not religious as I grew up

    Nor are they now

    But we always celebrated Easter

     

    Kites flying above

    Eggs filled with trinkets

    Baskets hidden in the dryer, we always […]

  • Click

    Clack

    No distractions

     

    Paper, a ding

    Return it back

     

    When I was eight I was given a typewriter

    Told it was Santa Claus’s

    That I was chosen

     

    I typed every word I kn […]

    You are home

    The easiness I find in each kiss

     

    We find a middle ground

    An urge to understand each other

    You hold me tighter

     

    I can see the glimmer in your eye

    Before the words leave y […]

  • Recycled air dances through my respiratory system

    Stranger’s shoulders brush against mine

    I keep my head forward

     

    Every bump is a sure sign of death

    Every announcement is my last

    I ask the […]

    “It’s just a stupid plant”

    Nustled in moist dirt

    Sitting in my hands

    Reaching for the sunlight

    Whispering oxygen into my nose

    A sapling

     

    She will outlive us

    Her growth quiet and […]

  • voldecurt wrote a new post, Teeth 1 week, 2 days ago

    The buzz from my electric toothbrush mocks me

    Ten years without the dentist

    Seeing the world through yellow-tinted teeth

    Peering through the gap between my two front chompers

    The chip I created when I […]

  • Amongst her sea of long black hair

    A tiny white gleam stares me down

    With eyes of wild green, she stares with such intensity

    For a few minutes, our hearts beat in sync

    Then hers starts to growing […]

  • Respect

    A place where people are valued

    No matter what

     

    No hurt

    Open communication

    Easy breathing

     

    Trees everywhere you look

    Looming gardens

    Vines wrapping around each o […]

  • voldecurt wrote a new post, Hug 1 week, 2 days ago

    Amazing how a song can feel like a hug

    A manufactured memory that brings you sweet tears

    Warm fuzzies and a cup of tea

    Just the way you like it

     

    Haunting how you can hear it in someone else’s […]

  • Cottage doors slam behind

    A firefly lit treeline illuminates the cobblestones

    My bottle of whiskey transported to my belly

    Warm, a strange warm

     

    Absent flames give off no heat

    I can still taste […]

  • beautifully written

  • voldecurt commented on the post, Bang 1 week, 2 days ago

    this is so beautifully written and an amazing take on how lack of communication can sink a relationship that could be beautiful

  • Growls fill the air

    Booming, a sign of doom

    My blood runs cold

    The ghost of simpler times haunts my bones

    Waving me off, my final goodbye

    Where is it coming from?

     

    A family of trees all […]
