Lay Back and Tell the Tale


Dust between the edges.
Simple traveling stories bring
Voice to the flames at the Crossroads.
Stumped and tied with dozens
Of chances weighing you down.
Frozen bits of dripping fear,
Soon to be yelled at by sobbing droogs
Regretful flies buzzing around
Broken forms of the hesitant.
With the ending plain to see
In the Ink,
Under the soft, slicey, Oh-So-Thin
Skin.

Skin, and why not eh?

Is there anything so pleasurable as skin on skin?

I think not.

You're a wonderful poet. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Rex, wow, I feel sadness when I read your blog. I know things in life don't always work out the way we expect they will and sometimes dampen our spirits and pull us in directions we never knew possible. I believe everything happens for a reason and and we will again triumph. Sending lots of hugs your way.
