A-part

shadows

A-part

My roots go deep but unknown

liquefied past with gray shadows

remains of a story never told

insignificant for others to hold

in a life condemned to gallows

awaiting my sentence alone.

~

But to hide in my banality

deaf to the voices screaming inside

a wish to reboot and reclaim

a shred of pieces that remains

of one that was, as dreams collide

hands tying the noose on my reality.

    Thank you πŸ™‚ I like certain cadence in my poems but sometimes lines just drop in there in the middle of the feeling, the same way a poem start with a line popping in my head. I don’t follow a particular style since I am not a poet, just poring out thoughts and feelings. You poems are beautiful and love the style so I will take time to do more reading and visit often πŸ™‚

    Your poem is filled with so much raw emotion, such haunting imagery like the line “liquefied past with gray shadows”. I was curious about the last line though. It sort of broke away from the rhyme scheme. Was that intentional?

        Thanks much Hector. Lines pop into my mind as well and most of my poems are simply that. But I’ve been learning how to mold them through rewriting.

        It’s interesting how you don’t follow a certain style and yet your poems seem so structured. I thought you’d done so intentionally.

        Keep on reading. There’s nothing like discovering great poetry πŸ™‚
