Puddles Of Life - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Talented withdrawal forming puddles of life, uncreated,
tenderly misleading, guidance from others causes bleeding
Defiance crowding inner strength, lowering the defenses
always counted on.
Reliability does not transcend the infidelity of memories,
cold, dark, unforgiving.
Saturated with belief, death threats are taken literally,
silencing reverberations of hatred and anger are shame and
guilt felt forever.
Placing the smallness of life inside of brown bottles in
refrigerators, daring to touch and slice away the innocence
of a child.
Branded, sent away to other dimensions, where no once can
hear the cry of sadness.
Plaintively stating facts held within secret rooms, carcasses
of remembrance fill a mind with reserve, tearing apart
intelligence and wonder.
Laced with taciturn pleadings, life continues it's journey
somehow from the minutes spent in freedom, away from lusting
Scaring all betrayal from ever being thought, sitting absently
throughout life, never belonging.
