Warped

Warped,

askew,

fingernails white

from the strain of holding on –

who says you have to strive ,

struggle,

work  so hard

to be loved?

  1. What kind of.poetry is this?

    • melodylowes says:

      I call it free form – this one doesn’t have any defined structure to it. I like to use lots of different forms and play around with conventions a bit, to let the creativity flow. 🙂

    Is this the one that I tried to access yesterday, and it said there was an error so I couldn’t read it?? Glad it’s back, or here, today!

    • melodylowes says:

      Oh – I posted it instead of saving a draft, and then ‘recalled’ it to post later. Sorry about the mix-up! I just figured out that I can schedule my posts for a certain time, so I don’t have to get up early to post! (duh)

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Ha ha ha! I’m not laughing AT you–I remember when I was staying up till midnight every night, to post! Now I have the freedom of scheduling–but I still stay up till all hours, writing or whatever…

      • melodylowes says:

        Live and learn, live and learn… *grin* I don’t have the luxury of staying up any more – must get my beauty rest – so is it ever nice to ‘schedule’! 🙂

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Since I have control issues, “scheduling” is my preference for just about everything in life–which is rather unrealistic a lot of the time, but still I try… You look gorgeous, by the by, but sleep is good, regardless!

      • melodylowes says:

        🙂 Don’t we ALL have control issues?? 🙂

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I don’t know–my neighbor (who is surely on my last nerve right now) seems to have gone the opposite way: control, for him, is not being tied to schedules, he doesn’t even wear a watch. So, back before I’d “had it” with being “June Cleaver” to his Fred Flintstone, trying to plan a dinner with him as guest was a challenge–maybe that’s why my hair thinned noticeably. And he’ll have to find some other generous friend to give him a free Thanksgiving this year–I’m tapped out, money and grace. Sorry to be cranky…

      • melodylowes says:

        It’s okay to have limits – even Jesus did! 🙂

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I know. It’s a constant learning process–made harder when my grace tank is low!

      • melodylowes says:

        Maybe you need a nice nap? 😉

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I don’t nap well–usually wake up all foggy, and then I’m up even later than Caddo-normal. I’m fine–I just had a busy day: bought more Christmas lights, and some “Bonanza” Pine Cones, scented cinnamon–they really smell up the apartment nice!!
