confronted by her past
freckled with pain
she’d conveniently air brushed
from her reality:
      it’s yesterday once more.

normally she smiled
while the knife was being twisted
but tonight her self confessed disclaimer
of a hideous past
has lost all credibility:
      it’s yesterday once more

It’s the yin/yang effect he said
Hideous on paper; beautiful in person

how I long to believe him…

everyone leaves behind a story
of mine I am unashamed
though I’d prefer mine to remain
hidden in obscurity
like symbols in a DaVinci masterpiece
embellishing all I am today
rather than nails in the lid of my own coffin
(I will not allow my past to seal my fate…)

who wants to be nailed
when they can be painted…?

It’s the yin/yang effect he said
Hideous on paper; beautiful in person…
Why have you valued yourself in pennies
When you are worth a kings ransom…?

egads; so many allegories from which to learn. .. a self effacing piece of heARTwork. .rendering the aesthetics with BOLD and italicized vapourized words creates a "yesterday" visual superbly. . .echoed wants and hopes for our selves/lives--- the painted, the touched--the ones who are allowing themselves to be rendered themselves, bent. . .breathed on and into being...alive.. . change is funny...and almost the only consistent thing in us. . .we hcange and must blend that into the scape of us
astonishing clarity and evocative write (id expect nothing less from you)

ahhh, interesting thing about freckles... the can be so beautiful, but airbrushing does put an unnatural gloss on their spunk... :)

you have created a haunting labyrinth here...
Reviewed by Felix Perry 9/3/2007
This writes gives us a lot to think about for in order to appreciate, judge and value anothers life we need to judge our own first. The past is but what shapes our future...both the good and the bad but although we should learn from it, is it necessary to review it on instant replay. This is one powerful write that makes the reader think about it's many facets.

though we cannot totally separate ourselves from the past, we can certainly overcome its presence in the manner we live our lives in the Now ...

excellent work, much enjoyed ...
Reviewed by Art Sun 9/3/2007
Nice work...your thoughts express a time of search in where one finds balance or is looking for that balance of life between the past and present, memories and harsh realities can take one to those points where balance and or yin/yang are a mere thought in comparison to one's own moral value...

a king's ransom?....yes we are more than that...

nice work.....

The past should be trated like a shadow of our life from a bad flickering light, that puff! and its gone whit sunrise.
Yin/yang is very good for Korean philosophy but we have our own yin/yang called self-esteem.

Having felt the knife twisting, smiling through it all, I felt this one deep to my core. Absolutely can't keep reliving the past without it affecting the future: been guilty of that, o, yes. Concur with Jerry (below). I needed to read this, NEED to read: saving. Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This is deep and exciting work! So many (myself included) allow our past to rule our present and that ain't no damn way to live . . . Thank you for posting this . . . I needed to read it . . . This one goes in my library and will be read often . . .
