Fragmented Memories

Fragmented Memories

A Poem by Erica Daubert


Blurred vision consumes her sight
as she wanders through the night
contrast and tint disguise humility
when she paints her fingers black

a damsel in distress yearning for her knight
an anti-hero armed with dynamite
to bring cool breeze and rain in humidity
and save a melancholiac

it was no ones fault but her own
this mighty queen has been dethroned
it's his turn to analyze
her face down on the floor

fragmented memories of his cologne
will be etched in time, on her tombstone
a scent she'd tried so hard to memorize
in which she'd bathed and explored

wishing for one last caress
leaves her standards seeking less
his laugh, his kiss, his world of wonders
domesticated a wild heart

false hope has bloomed quite the actress
compacting feelings like waste will compress
only miles away, yet a seperate universe
'cause you can't combine two works of art

A strong and gelding piece that speaks volumes on the eccentricites in all of us, well done, good read.

this is something special (: I love the comparisons and use of words having to do with darkness, night/knight, light it's beautifully done (:

"a damsel in distress yearning for her knight

The poem is amazing. I like the story in the words. I like the desire and needs in the powerful poetry. I like the strong ending to the outstanding poetry.

Written with feeling!

wishing for just one last caress
leaves her strandards seeking less
his laugh, his kiss, his world of wonders
domesticated a wild heart

Love that stanza!
