By: Fee


 His darkness, her light

divided but not apart

blinded eyes bleed tears


 in state of limbo

paying for sins undefined

heart purgatory


No one sees but them

bittersweet pain behind a veil

pretending to breathe


Looking for a sign

watching in the dark of hurt

for reason to go on…

No wonder there are so many comments to this writing. Its very brevity is its substance. I truly appreciate this piece, all of it. There is hugeness to the concepts of: "divided but not apart" "....sins undefined" (that one is loaded with layers upon layers); and "heart purgatory," is about the best way I've ever seen heartache written down for the reading. "pretending to breathe" carries an essence of suffocation that can be felt just looking at those three words. Immaculate poetry in my eyes, Fee. ~~ Diana

I get a great deal out of reading these words because what they express is familiar to me. Thank you. I also wonder as to why you don't deem me worthy of a comment or two from you on the "stuff" that I share. Thank you for sharing, Fee. Love and peace,

Opposites attract. It's in our genetic makeup. Civilization is spent a lot of time and effort trying to deny it, but it cannot be denied. Viva la difference!

Fee, as long as we are still "Looking for a sign" there is reason for optimism, the breeding place for hope and expectation. Dick

a felt edge to this velvet verse... torrid and terse... like an anguished curse... put upon to rehearse... drenched in heavy darkness, alighting to rehearse... the same surly dreams... light and dark intersperse...

A rich poem, Fee...

Dark. I like dark. You put this together as perhaps you are living it. Hoping for better days if that is so, Felix.
