    his blood slowing
    january veins
    outstretched arms
    to jealous sky
    crimson rivers
    welling up from
    what’s left inside
    last words choked
    by a wounded existence
    a simple stone,
    a requiem in lowercase

    ‘without compass,
    he wandered the earth.
    found north for a season,
    then he lost her.’

      ‘without compass,

    she was your north...
    i wonder if its possible to find a new one...?

    i think it is.
    but i dont think its something that happens on purpose... you know?
    i think its one of those things you mourn and mourn and mourn and then all of a sudden you catch yourself mourning and wonder why youre doing it because somehow you have a new north... it doesnt have to be a girl... it can be anything... just a new mooring... a new bearing... a new way of judging direction in life...

    i think its one of those things that just happens.
    gradually and then suddenly to quote prozac nation...

      Oooooohhhhhhh, I do like this one, especially the ending (no, not just cuz it's the last thing I read, but because it fits so well)...

    And, Who golfs?

      i'd say a lot of your adjectives are interchangeable with similar ones.

    that suggests to me that the writing is a bit short lines of summary rather than being one living breathing beast.

    a short poem like this should be dense with linkage and sonics teeing off, letting the big dog run. (that's golf talk)

    this is pitch and putt stuff at present.

    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
