You’ve drawn the line
and I can feel reality as

barbed wire pierces my
heart and blood stains
my outlook on us. It would
been nice to see
deeply into each
worlds. I was living
the clouds not seeing 
this sketched out.
So for now,

I’ll continue walking
through fields 
of what could have been

  1. Most evocative thoughts and poignant points in your verses dear Lauren!Life is so unpredictable and human’s soul unfathomable indeed … Have a wonderful weekend my friend:) ❤ xxx

    1. Thanks, Chris, and it is definitely easy to live with our heads in the clouds. This is one poem in the “unsure of posting” category but again, I went with it. 🙂 Hope you are feeling brighter and have a lovely weekend! Hugs and blessings! xoxo

  2. The uncertainties and unpleasant surprises are worst kept secrets of life, and when they come they come in loads, and it is then that we check our tenacity and intensity to fight it out and protect our life and extent our living…
    So beautiful conceptualized and wonderfully presented…lineation, love it.

  3. Sad but lovely poem Lauren
    I too have lingered in the fields of what could have been.
    It does no good to the emotions of the heart.
    There are brighter and better pastures Lauren.
    I hope you find yours.

    1. Thanks so much, Ian, and just so you know, this is completely fiction. Many of my melancholy poems are derived from the past (zillions of years ago). 🙂 I do agree with what you said though…have a wonderful week!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear about your estrangement with your son, Don, but I appreciate your kind words about my poem. I know, some poems hit home and they’re not always happy emotions..take care…

I appreciate your thoughts!
