In utter cacophony,
her mind struggles between
rueful degradation
and reckless greed.

Cimmerian nights call
unrestrained lust,
exposing hours of unshielded
attachment leaving her haggard heart frigid.

Filthy paper souvenirs sustain
a damaged body as she spirals
loathsomely;
her shameful tears lull her to sleep.

Heartbreaking years accumulate;
her open door policy abruptly closes,
overexposed,
she dies untouched
by true love.

Wow Aphrodite!  :sun:  :lovie:  :dance:

This is truly a piece for our Garden here. Artist.gif

I find myself drawn into her lonely world with so few words. Your selection of words and images really captures her plea.

Nicely done and congrats for being the first post in this forum! Balloons.gif  

You've added a tile to our Mosaic in style!

Cheers!  :pharoah2

Lindi,
after reading this wonderful piece, a thought came to mind, a metaphor to be exact, "live by the sword, die by the sword".
A poignant write.
Like your new avatar too.

Hi Daddy~ (hee, hee)

Thanks, Zeus for stopping by to read and comment on this piece. I couldn't agree with you more, as far as your quote goes."Live by the sword, die by the sword".

Amen, my friend.

Fully enjoyed reading, more so after reading the good people responding.  I have not experienced such constructive sharing
with people I enjoy relating with.  Translation:  very good to be here and all the better as I may join you all.

Thanks for all your whim,
Brahms

Hello Cathy~ wave.gif

Thank you so much for reading and commenting so nicely on my poem.
I apologize for being so remiss, as I didn't receive a tracker notification.
(probably because of time gone)

I appreciate your compliments very much!

Hi, Lindi - I've not seen this poem before... it must have been one of the very first postings on MM?

Anyway, as fresh now as then and this line...

"her open door policy abruptly closes"

Brilliant. I hate cliches but I do so appreciate it when cliches are turned in on themselves to create something new - this is an excellent example.

Glad this re-surfaced.

James.
