war lyrics

My lover’s desperate eyes follow –

when rocking on my chair,
I get attached to war lyrics,
painting a window on the surface
of songs. I walk

in margins, my wounded
soul apologizes to everyone
I knew who died,

so I can breathe.

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Shailjaa! Made my day for sure. But please don’t wonder about why you write for these prompts. You write because that is what you like to do, like the rest of us! I haven’t had the chance to read entries since morning but I am going to do that now. I am sure what you wrote is quite good :), as you always do.

  1. I read and re-read. You’ve layered a lot of meaning into this piece. I agree with all the comments above and want to add that the format you’ve used adds to the solemnity. Wonderfully realized.

  2. I went back and read this three time to make sure I “got” all the layers of this piece. Guilt. Ugh! Such an awful feeling, but the light in it all is being able to forgive. This was fantastic!!! I’ve been away so long that you’ve changed your look here and I love it. So crisp and clean. Very motivating to me!!!
