A piece of ourselves

 

The sun honey colored
 and brazen
gleamed through the door as he entered
clutching bouquets of flowers.
Daisies, Lillis,Ginger
wild and beautiful.
I reached out for one,
the thorns of the rose
pierced my skin,
reminding me that life
was not always this way,
soft and loud with beauty.
The flower guy
was away in a mountain cabin
 writing his first novel.
I smile 
understanding the struggle of
bleeding unto the page,
pouring our fears,
unveiling our truth,
weaving our words.
How softly we click on
the keys of our devices 
writing feverishly.
Our minds holding boulders,
in the trenches of our thoughts,
fearful to leave on the page
more of ourselves than 
we intended to.
I trim the flowers
on a slant,
place them in the 
green and white crystal vase.
I cut my words
into shattered pieces of myself,
I place them on the page,
exposed,
quickly I
erase and
start over.

  1. It is hard to write and share a piece of ourselves to the world ~ I admire writers and poets who do it eloquently ~

  3. Such imagery, Ayala. Love it. Especially this line:"Our minds holding boulders,in the trenches of our thoughts,fearful to leave on the page
    more of ourselves than we intended to." Thank you.

    bleeding unto the page,"

  9. To find the right words to express our feelings can be difficult. The words do cut leaving one in a state of vulnerability. Sometimes we need that giant eraser or white-out to cover the parts we wish not to remember.

    It is just amazing how one is checked in one's writing all the time. But the will to continue all over again is sustained. That's the beauty of it! Very true ayala!

  11. Indeed. There are things we simply cannot put on paper, that's why some poet veil their words with metaphors.

  16. I like your poems these days, Ayala. Your poetics are getting bolder & revealing of your true self & emotions, the natural you. Keep them flowing. :)

  17. It takes boldness to share pieces of our souls...to leave it unedited. There are times I face the fear I have said too much, but still I release my words. Time will tell. This is beautiful.
