Ya’aburnee – A Poem

A response to the poetry prompt HERE


You leave with promises

We know are faithfully sworn

And feckless

Such is the tear in my heart

That a droplet-necklace of red

Connects us

Even when you pass over

The horizon

I grow an iron skin

To halt the aching

But it traps the tears

The bleeding

Until the rust

Eats through

And I burst with longing

For you

A decade of unholy want

Spills forth

I’m calling to you my love

Across a bloody ocean


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

  1. Even better the fourth time.

  2. Sigh….Panda, you take the words right out of my mouth. How do you do that?
    Are we the same person?

  3. mobius faith says:

    Nicely done. “Feckless” is such a great word.

  4. Well, here is mine for what it’s worth…I’m not sure if anyone but the person I wrote it about will understand it so it’s probably a very bad poem but writing it was good for my soul…. peace FatW

  5. Miriam E. says:

    oh wow. i loved the ‘iron skin’ part and what followed… so perfect!

  6. I just looked up your title. How do you find these non-translatable exhalations of pure spirit that we reduce to simple “love” in our own language. Wow.

      Gorgeous isn’t it – I found it while looking up Moby’s shara.. thing I can’t remember!
      I have tried 20 themes and now I want to kill someone!! IP is ok as it is – let’s just run with it, and I’ll tart it up more when I’ve calmed down!
      Would you like to do an about page? Then we can start inviting 🙂

    • ruleofstupid says:

      Too tired to go on! I think we’ve got a good pool of folk to do IronP, not too many to start. Thank you for being with me in starting this up – feels pretty special, trying new ways to really connect people. More mumbling tomorrow 😀

    I know I am not a poetry kind of chick and sometimes stuff goes right over my curly head, but I do enjoy reading your words. Thanks for posting 🙂

  8. E says:

    this is so gorgeous! especially the third stanza… it’s so full of imagery and i can’t get over how much i love the “iron skin” and the rust eating through… so delicious!

    • ruleofstupid says:

      Thank you E, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’d say something more eloquent, but I’m weirded out by being joined by two different people called ‘E’ this week!
      Is this a new movement!?!?

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