Tenterhooks

Tenterhooks

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Just scribbling off a tired mind. Experimental.

"
Where are we headed, I thought
as I laid to rest my tired heart,

my thoughts a swirling mess.


Where are we headed, I thought
in the silence of night,

threadbare emotions on tenterhooks.


The inside of my eyes are heavy,
drooping; I grow wary of words

uttered in a tumbling rush.


You are beautiful,
you are Princess; I was told ...

Honest and direct thoughts in the poem. Words can tempt us and make us wish to love and believe. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Yes they can and you are welcome my dear friend.
i like the right sided orientation .. it wakes me up ;) i like the straight forward language, honesty and vulnerability ..and i am thankful for my new word "Tenterhooks" ..nice metaphor ..painful indeed .. not the "gentle" cycle

If those words come from a tired mind, may i sleep walk with you, please. They're so finely laid, so much a reflection of your here and now emotions. Your experimental work seems to reflect your actions, yet always leaves a door slightly open ...

Reading your caption before and after I read the piece, your writing really encapsulates your mind-state here, for very good reasons. You set the direction right from the start with that intro line, which was that of a mind tangled in multiple directions, and it worked wonderfully.

"The inside of my eyes are heavy,
drooping; I grow wary of words

uttered in a tumbling rush.

You are beautiful,
you are a Princess; I was told ..."

Excellent, in my mind. I wouldn't alter a thing, Doc. Missed your writes. :)
