Rage (Etheree)

Rage….

uncaged

my mind roars

emotions soar

trapped in wild-eyed craze

clarity stripped hate-haze

impulse driven mindless roar

violence strikes, evens the score

hysterical screams, mouth-choking oaths

shredded sibilant words rake us  both

This was an attempt to debrief myself and describe what I felt after a monumental fight.

Dragonbane (Senryu)

Worthless   litter   dust

ignites……. soft heart into……glass

breath   of   a…. dragon

When one is made to feel as worthless as litter, it doesn’t take many hot words to feel ones’ heart turn into fragile glass.

Senryu:  the style is the same as Haiku but the theme is related to feelings and relationships.

Pillowed Grief (Etheree)

Two

Pillows

Two people

One on each side

Together…. alone

Pretense of happiness

Reality hiding…. grief

Sobbing tears drench this yawning space

Clutching its’ cold inanimate form

Loving hold….fantasy fairy dreams….SOMEDAY

Depression (Senryu)

Enclosing darkness

Black hued walls suffocate life

Depression chokes light

Broken Wings (Etheree)

Lost

ardor,

sensuous

thought envelops

frozen memory,

melting failed fairy dust.

No escape from locked despair.

Unblessed, troubled relationship;

these feelings screaming into dark night

as broken fairy wings…… surrender flight.
