Frozen Moments

Frozen Moments

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental... one of the edits by Silente.

"
My soul searches for the unanswered questions that rush by...
 My train of thoughts never seem to stop
and yet frozen moments make them come to a chilled halt...
 I draw in tense exaggerated breaths like puffs of smoke
 I inhale them
 or was it that I just exhaled a sigh of relief...
 'cause my hopes
 though seemingly unwavering...
remain not lifted as I dig in more into that bottom most shelf of my heart where I kept you hidden...
 "It" being the sweet haven of the memories now turned bitter
 but I won't let go of the ear-shattering bone-cracking truths...
 I seem to drown my soul in an eerie mess that rests inside this cage of a body bruised blue
 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

search of my soul ... unanswered questions 
train of thoughts; rushing by ... never stopping
frozen moments ... untimely hours; halted

tense, exaggerated breaths ... puffs of smoke
a sigh of relief ... inhale or maybe ~ exhale
seemingly unwavered ... hopes 

bottom most shelf of my heart ~ sweet haven 
memories of you ... turned bitter 
ear shattering, bone cracking truths

~ I seem to drown ~ 

... my soul --- an eerie mess 
resting inside ~ this cage of a body; bruised blue ...

This is probably an attempt to compare my current writing style with Silente's...

Interesting. I am not sure which says it better. I think they both do, in different ways. Your poem is perhaps, more 'involved' -subjective? And Silente's is more objective.( There is only one 'I' and only one 'my'.) But they are both equally valid, and I liked them both. Good experiment.

I don't understand.. is it your piece of Silente's? Anyway, I like this poem. It's sad and depressing but really fits my mood right now lol.

This is a fascinating experiment... at least that's what i think it is. There's a true comparison of style, genre, call it what you like here, words that roam into and upon different plains, and another that travels less yet never succumbs to obvious brevity. Not saying which i prefer, not claiming a favourite phrase .. but admire what's been done, start to finish. Fine work by both Yumna and Silente.

Thank you. I appreciate your words here :)
That is one smasher... always the intro is a bomb... and well contracted

what's killing me is this line,'"I draw in tense exaggerated breaths like puffs of smoke."
That line is a monster

Only one of you dear friend. Each writer had their own style. Different life and experiences. I liked the honest thoughts and powerful use of description in the poetry. You made the reader feel the thoughts and the struggle. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
