Dawn

A Poem by Cole Hayley

Dawn
Get off work
Late 
First blood of blue
Drawn on the night 
I crumble like a statue 
In unpredictable ways 
My bed my tomb 
Day breaks in my room
I can't sleep
I try 
I think of her 
I think of our boat and our children

Lovely, well written. It has a feel of romance, lack of attention to time (which is what many of us do)

The poem shared a time. You create place, memories and a part of a life. Thank you Cole for sharing the excellent poetry.

Love the way it ends.

The other parts are rather intense, maybe even macabre (blood/night/statue/tomb)

But it ends with an almost domestic landscape...children on boats

And those tend to be the moments which pull our heartstrings most.
