walls

castle-walls04

In sadness I fly
on what could be,
what should be.

In madness I try
to find vic’try,
make his’try.

In gladness I cry
I’m empty,
can’t touch me.

And then I break down.

    Beautiful photo Jessica. Is it yours? I’m sure you were there. I would love to see before I die. Keep writing. Love your prose/poetry!!!

    Terri, you got me. I had been meaning to put up the photo credit. No, I didn’t take it. I wish! I’m hoping to make it to Europe in the near future, so maybe I *will* see some places like this… I’m glad you like what I write. Thank you so very much for reading and commenting! It means so much to me. :)

    Admittedly, your poetry is so well written it hurts to read the emotion between the stanzas sometimes. But the beauty of the words heals. As always, nicely done.

    Very touching poem, Jessica. I feel it right here (heart).

    Awesome photo to go with the poem.

  8. Such a tragic end, but its imitation to life makes ‘walls’ a special piece of work.
