I am the nothing

I am the everything

The embers of misty memories

The heat in the heart of forbidden love

The futile ashes of yesterdays beginnings

The storm-filled air

Where treasonous thoughts fight for acceptance

In a mediocre existence

I am copper and colour and molten metal

Fused with love, hate, passion

Enraptured by vision in a blinded existence

A babies cry, a banshees wail

The olfactory reverence of a loved ones perfume

I am silk and velvet, leather and lace

The eagle, both regal and soaring

The bear, gruesome, yet protective

The Earth, the Heavens

The all and the nothing…

I am

Wrote this one on a prompt from a creative writing class…

  1. I wish I’d written this! Lol, in other words it captures those elusive, hard to describe feelings gloriously. Not easy…and not many dig as deep as you do. I’m so glad to get to read them. Inspiring! Thank you♡
