You Gasped Poem by M.J. Lemon

You Gasped

Rating: 5.0

Keep the chair, the pets,
the artwork, the antiques
and I'll even throw in the garden hose
Just as long as my fate, a rose

In your hands bleeds hope
and crouches underneath
the memories of togetherness
that dispel insecurities, prowess-

that make me infirm.
Sitting, back straight eyes closed
legs crossed hands clasped
you sang, a low voice. You gasped.

There's humour at the time...but often not acknowledged. Thank you, LeeAnn.

Even in despair, there is hope and this hope sustains life! I sense a kind of longing in your poem! Memories of togetherness arouse deep sense of nostalgia! Great write!

Thanks for the honour, Bri! Hope all is going well in beautiful NC...a land that must be inspirational to the poet.

(CONT.) C - And I think your pattern of capitalization is inconsistent with the rules of prose, AND with the ‘usual pattern’ in poetry. It is not the easiest ‘read’ for me, but I like it. To MyPoemList. Bri (:

Thank you so much, Bri. You are right on about prose. Not too sure about the poetry, though. There have been many innovations.
