Outside Looking In


Outside Looking In

Of all the slaps
Slung by love
None hurts so much
As a shove

Out to the blizzard
Deep with snow
Shivered by the
Sudden blow.

Baffled, hurting,
Cast aside,
Puzzled, frightened
Holding tight

To mem'ries of
Precious years
Which slowly melt
Away to tears.

  1. It makes me wonder what happened to you. I'd like to have an intimate chat. What made the memories melt to tears?

  2. Sad, sad....

    As you've tagged your sweet sad poem "family" as well as "rejection", I'll read it as, perhaps, a parent disowning an offspring rather than one spouse rejecting their partner. Has to be heart-breaking, and hard to live with - in both directions.

  3. I like the links between melting snow and tears, and snow and rejection. A very poignant poem.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
