Haunted

Somehow I didn't feel like this weeks prompt "haunted", for writers island. I am a committed person however and did it anyway and got it over and done with quickly. For rushing this I am sorry. When I finished this I thought; "Oh people think there she goes again fixing all problems with a few pen strikes, sorry a few keyboard touches. Than I thought for this I am not sorry. I am a mum in heart and soul, just wanting to put a plaster on the pain of the world, to than put a kiss on it to make it all go away.

Haunted

She came out of the dark
sinister place of solitude
where silence screams into
a barrel of pain of a woman
 
 

haunted by the past.


The dusky morning
filters her scanning
zooming in on images
to snap fainted memories
of him and her

She sifts
the memories as
glass splinters through her mind
Scratching her soul which
is already bleeding from the
loss of intense love.
 
Until she receives a gift
from an old friend
giving her a new look on life
through his spiritual glasses
creating a smile and softness
on a woman's face,
 
 

being touched by the present

...........................and him!

  4. Putting a band aid on the world's pain is a good thing and bringing a smile to someone, with your writing is a good place to start.

  5. My gosh Marja, you are good. I hope you are published. Do you have any published work? If you don't get busy, and if you do I would love to purchase it. What a treat. Thanks!

  8. Wow, that hardly feels rushed at all. I wish I could write poetry like that on the fly. That was beautiful.

    She sifts the memories as
    glass splinters through her mind

  10. Looking back is the worst sort of haunt. Picture and words really work together. And you "rushed" this? It feels mature and complete as it stands.

  21. Marja, I always loved reading your works! I like the woman behind the write because it is her soul that makes her appealing to the reader and those who she blesses with her friendship. This is such a lovely piece here!
