poetry thursday {i can't let it go}...

bare bones
and scarce hidden
you remain true
to me...
ripped open
flayed and betrayed
you never turn away
from me...
i shudder and shake,
i quiver and quake,
you stand firm
in the wreckage of my wake...

and when it passes
when all is said and done
you are my stone,
you are my one.

looking for more poetry...visit read write poem...

The last line in this poem...divine.

The picture? Um, phenomonal. I saw it on flickr and popped right over here to read the poem that went with.
Beautiful, really, truly beautiful.

so many incredible words.
flayed
wreckage
shudder
quiver
betrayed

wow. really love the imagery here...and how the reader can project almost anything, which is sometimes quite a gift from the poet.

(i just said to jonny that i might start posting on thursdays again. thursdays never seem quite right without a little poetry. thanks for this.)

Poe could have written this,
but he didn't.
