Irreparable – A Quadrille

Irreparable

Maintaining composure
You cannot see
what is really going on
inside of me
 
You see ambivalence
no care to give
I’m a broken vessel
from the life I live
 
The dark side called
Unable to fix
This soulless specimen
got lost in the mix

      Thanks Jay. It’s all about keeping with the boundaries of 44 words total 🙂

        Reminds me of something else I just learned, the “American Sentence.”

        Ah yes, Allen Ginsburg and The American Sentence!
        I really like the challenge of Haiku, to write something meaningful in a minimum amount of syllables. I enjoy the challenge of it. Other times I can ramble on and on! 🤣

        Hahaha I noticed you like it 😉 I like your longer ones too, tho. Gives you a chance to really say more

        Thank you! The Daily Haiku keeps me focused but I do enjoy longer poems 👍

        Yes focus is important in the long run for blogging. . .

    What’s broken inside might not show…. but it’s very hard to fix.

      Some people never heal.

    May what’s broken be made whole again.
