Old and new – A Poem

Triggered by a prayer like gravity, and susan daniels – this is my response to gravity’s prompt.

Old and New

I had no truck with romance and fluff

Call me a crusty old gust

of yesterdays stuffy huff

if you must

There were gambles I could make

but where the heart was at stake

I played it safe

I’d had my share of aches

and desires to slake

but squirrelled them away

Until she came from the grey

and for brief years she stayed

to chip my walls away

I lay with her form as it grew

to become the only

shape of love that I knew

And my forlorn acorn of lust

once scorned became an undauntable

oak of us

She the frame of life explained

my veins contained

the love we made

She my sight, my reason why

my strength to fight

my air supply

She all too temporary real

still fills my arms, I can feel

her gone

Even now more real than anyone


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  3. Simply beautiful. Wow. I love your stuff….I tell you that all the time. Lol!

  4. As I wrote on gravity’s site – loved it especially the 6th and 8th. Oh Mimsy – the challenge has begun 😉

  7. This is beautifully done, Panda. I also loved the poem you worked on together with Ramblings. 🙂

  8. This is beautiful. Is she a panda too? I hope she’s not gone, but hibernating perhaps… 🙂

  9. Morbid Insanity says:

    Painfully good! It made me miss someone from a past that I try to forget. But, at the same time, it made ​​me feel something slightly good because, at least, there was someone in my past.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
