It bubbles beneath the skin,
Small ripples emanating from the core of a wounded heart.
Tiny lingering flecks of closeted anxiety,
Compressed with age and hidden by tenacity.
Living fossils that once roamed freely within her soul,
Tearing through the ages and spreading corruption,
Flavoring her every passing thought – her actions.
An excruciating monologue jammed into a loop
– and stuck fast.
What was once a whole sea of anger, now lingers a quiet resignation.
Yet I feel it. Simmering, festering, a silent volcano,

Waiting to submerge.

    Back in black with your ink-gun singing out a a mournful melody. Perfect for Sunday morning πŸ™‚

    Great response. Perhaps you’ll make Sammi’s Saturday Challenge a regular thing. It’s a well-attended and popular venue.

    Enjoy Sunday and the new week ahead.

    Take care. Namaste πŸ™‚



    1. You know what, I probably should try now I’ve found out where the happening spot is πŸ˜‰
      Also I read through a couple of your posts earlier Dewin, I like the new style, seems like a challenging way to write too πŸ˜€

        I aim to submit a piece for the challenge most weeks…it’s an enjoyable way to warm to a weekend’s writing.

        Thank you for reading a couple of my posts πŸ™‚ The current style is a self-imposed challenge – 3 line verses only six words – and continues to be tricky. I’m not sure if it’s a style that will stay or rather an exercise in itself.

        You’ve been away from WP for a while and may have missed two previously published narrative-poems written slightly differently. If curious:

        The Great Fairy Fire – begins here with ‘Panther’:

        Piper At The Gates Of Dawn – begins here with ‘Charmed’:

        The first poem is yet to be finished and remains an early winter project. The other is complete. Should you read either, good luck lol πŸ™‚

        See you at Sammi’s for the weekly challenge. Have a wonderful week.

        Namaste πŸ™‚



      2. Hehe thanks for links Dewin, I’m still working through everyone’s blogs and am currently reading number 9 of the underworld getaway and I’m enjoying it in all its immediate glory. I would have left you a note there but the comments have been closed on the pages?

        But inward with the catch up and glad to be looking forward to joining you on the weekly challenge. πŸ™‚

      3. You’re welcome πŸ™‚

        Being notified that ‘comments are closed’ is not my doing but seemingly a persisting fault. I’ll investigate further, thank you for mentioning it.

        Enjoy your fest of blogging and catch up. Have a pleasant evening.

        Namaste πŸ™‚
