LOSS #poetry by jay

Loss fungal/ passed away
Time gave me a gift and I held tight

Helix band tightened/ screwed 
Deep pools of wondrous/ blue

Moments lost in parallax/ broken concrete
Eyes set/ fixed on you/ spinning

Over the moon/ under my bed
Sealed on the edges

The smack talk/ backwards
I remember the happy times

Lost then gained/ over then under/ then over
then under/ then lost again.

  1. I won’t pretend to grasp all your imagery, Jay…but I really liked how you laid it down and the last two lines, were personally relatable and also beautifully written. Your style is yours..and I am coming to know it..I already know, I like it:)

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
