A Broken Moment

A Broken Moment

A Poem by LivingDeath

My guitar lays in pieces, this wreckage unknown
painting a picture, iridescent, alone,
the clock on the wall, burned into time
the wild rain falls like a nursery rhyme.

The trees sway outside, out of control
the air from my lungs, taken below,
times sweet possession, walked to the sea
the string of my life, the ruin debris. 

Where are my friends, those sweet kindred souls
this calm blissful moment, to the ocean I go.

I love how you utilize the imagery of a nursery rhyme in the first stanza. Well done.

I agree with the ending. The ocean can bring peace to the wild in spirit. A wild beginning with a very nice ending to the poem. A excellent poem.

Wow... I really like the flow, the word choice and the feel to it.
I was sent this as a RR from a friend, and I'm pleased they sent me it. It's so beautifully done!

This poem is classic. I love how smooth and easy it is to read and yet it has that feel that pinches at your soul. Its quite brilliant really with the kind of description you give on each of the sectors of nature showing different emotions and its like an ocean that continues on. Especially the line, "times sweet possession, walked to the sea the string of my life, the ruin debris." Powerful.
