Unfinished Piece of Art

Unfinished Piece of Art

A Poem by Tania

Suffocating .

My heart falling ,

and my body fighting 

for it to stay in place.

I had finally realized , 

that my last breath was 

near me .

Closed the door 

without looking back.

Threw the keys ,

in the deepest of my wounds 

bounded to be untouched 

bounded to be unfixed.

What do I do ?

When I become a crumpled piece of paper, 

thrown away with the written words I once held.

I became unwanted , undesired , untouched .

Do not unfold me. 

Do not try to dive into my flesh ,

to understand my essence

my very core of existence;

for I am undone.

If I was a  piece of art , 

I would admire the creator . 

The artist who holds his brush 

to draw the pieces I have missing , 

to complete the admirable vision of what 

I  am supposed to be  like.

To discover me , 

entirely ,

completely .

I threw the keys in my deepest wounds , 

and allowed time to carry me through .

To be in a place with 

no complications.

No perfections .

A place where I can meet the artist , 

and the artist meets me ,

the unfinished piece of art.

really enjoyed this
well done
the art lives to meet
the maker

i like the time healing
but you said it way better
and the incompleteness
and imperfections of the art

I really like the thought that you worded in this poem. I want more such writings from you, Tania. Nice job. Keep writing.

Nice writing I did wonder when you wrote Do not unfold me, do not try to dive into my naked flesh you actually wanted the opposite, you wanted the artist as like a woman does do in translation, you know when a woman says she's ok and you know it's not!

Glad You liked it :) thank-you
Really really nice. I find this poem unique and mesmerizing. I love your ending lines especially. Btw, is it supposed to be "threw the keys" instead of "Throwed the keys" on the second stanza?
