Glitches and Stitches

Glitches and Stitches

A Poem by Cobblestone Traveler


Abandoned by you over a decade ago
Released to the howling, nipping wind
One would think that I would learn
My trivial place in your darting eyes

The faulty wires in my fluttering heart
Jolt the senses and corrupt the signal
Sending flashes across my optic screen
Causing hollow hope and optimistic lies

If only I had the power to extract you
To burn you out of my memory chamber
I'd reset my brain to accept actual love
And see what it's like to be treasured

And the driving force behind the twist
Of the jagged blade, coated in poison
Is the ease with which you left me
Out of sight, onto the next pleasure

While to this day, I continue to stitch
These enchanted, unhealing wounds
I've started the journey to find the cure
The potion of closure and restoration

I deserve to be considered precious
I'm worth endless suns and moons
Much more than your fizzled star
In a distant, forgotten constellation

A poem with no explicit rhythm (in a good way), playing merely to the rhythm of speech, and still ensuring a rhyme at the end of every stanza. Poetic and profound in theme and story, and musically tuned to perfection. ¡Bravo!

very strong ending---self-confidence being restored...we deserve love and to be treated with respect...really like your use of metaphor in this...especially "the faulty wires in my fluttering heart"

Thank you for taking the time to read. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Interesting read. Excellent imagery.
Good composition. Passionate with a "realness" and raw emotion...
Witty, retrospective.
Great read! Thank you for sharing!
