Washing Life by Kori| Written 8/1/17

Love is scattered around,
still feeling raw to collect the pieces.

Sitting on the curved edge,
the force to live is fading.

Emotions tattered,
a friend chimes in showing disdain.

He skirted the truths thrown at him,
and refuses to take responsibility.

He drew the short straw,
but failed to come clean.

Sunday Whirl. Find me lurking below:

  1. Digging this. A couple thouhhts:

    1. What are your thoughts behind using italics here? What are you trying to emphasize?

    2. Life gets a lot better. I’ve been right where you’re at–maybe a little too much. Keep chuggin’.

    3. I like this image of living on a curved edge. I mean–it’s that exactly what we’re all doing? Isn’t that the experience of 7 billion people living on the Earth’s surface? There’s something really brilliant in that line: we’re all here, physically and psychologically. We’re all skirting the line. We’re all just existing.

    Thanks for the read!


    • Hey there! Thanks for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. The words used were from the Sunday Whirl prompt. Basically you get a set of random words and have to use them in your writing.

      2. I’m not depressed or anything lol even if my poem seems depressing. It’s about a guy I was in a relationship with who was sort of unhappy in his life yet lied constantly.

      3. I’m glad you enjoyed that line, it was a bit more morbid than that. The guy who I am talking about stated that he contemplated suicide a few times.

      Again, thank you for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ I am glad you enjoyed this!
