When the Stitches of Life Come Unglued

When the Stitches of Life Come Unglued

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

I look down at my feet and wonder if they even remember where they have run........

"




Sometimes the unseen embraces all I know
while my skin burns
from the tears of angels
falling continuously
as they face the darkness of voices
speaking within my heart.  
I get lost inside of my emotions
and find I've become devoted
to screaming winds  
that given precious time
could tear me apart.

I look down at my feet and wonder
if they even remember
where they have run
and if anyone knows of  their regrets
after splashing through the puddles
my passion led them into.  
And it seems
even if I place both feet together
I'm still bound
to face that old mirror
when the stitches of  my life
come unglued.

"I get lost inside of my emotions
and find I've become devoted
to screaming winds
that given precious time
could tear me apart."

Sometimes I have a chaos inside me, overwhelmed, emotions screaming for some release or purpose... a fascination with the darkness and wild entropy

This poem speaks to me of those times.

This one seems like it goes right along with Lightning Strikes... rather than the explosion itself though, this write seems to be the result of the explosion or, more likely, what happens if you don't let the emotions go. I like the sequence of "connections" in this, the stitches, the feet bound for the mud and then to the mirror, and especially unusual binding to memories. You feel like a lightning rod between Heaven and Earth, and the mirror only validates that feeling. Of course your writing makes you messenger between Heaven and Earth. Nicely done.

OK this one more for now, and then I must save the rest for when I come back....and I WILL come back. Your words are a feast for my senses, and I shall have them all. Your life will never come unglued, Neva. You are too precious.

Thank you Honey :)
Very powerful work, Neva! As usual, the marriageable imagery adds to the beauty and nakedness that is revealed, with the mere stroke of a pen!

Keep up the good work, Neva!! :)
