SuziCate's Musings

Fusion

Separated

by a double-edged sword of truth,

you stand in the midst of tomorrow

while she hangs in the shadows of yesterday.

Your truth bares a shudder of fragile bones,

her innate fear of life’s prowling anger.

You juggle her wailing ego against dashing dreams,

spinning and sinking in darkness.

She stifles the infinite messages of petrified wood

as you struggle to spill them onto the sand.

She hides her fears behind nomadic gleams

of beads, baubles, and bright scarves

while you dive naked and headfirst into ocean’s roar.

You both bleed regrets into ordinary silences

rushing to catch the ranting swells of time.

Holding hands, trample into the barefoot night

and wrestle with the grace of dawn:

together you might catch a falling star.

  1. the separation seems so separated it is doubtful they are on the same path to catch that star

  2. At first I thought it was two people, then I wondered if it was a change in one person’s life. Hmmm

    • It’s up for interpretation…can be whoever or whatever one reads into it…don’t you just love ambiguousness?!

  3. What a love story! What a desperate dash to repair a broken dream. I see a man rushing to save a relationship he’s willing to die for and a woman wanting to believe. Masterpiece of words in verse. Blessings to you, Suzi…

  4. Just copied and pasted several of your poems into Word docs for whenever. You are given credit for all.
    Hope that’s alright. Thank you very much, Clar
