Hey all: saw this poetry challenge over on Gabriella’s site. First time I’ve tried a Haibun but it seems like fun. Join us!
We’re meant to link our poetry to a photo posted by Gabriella for inspiration.
Under the Bridge
If I stay here in this space no one can know me nor who I was before the years took away my dreams. Lying, rushing, cast-aways among the stone coldness of your heart, while my heart dreamed so big for us. Washed up anniversaries and failures. Roadtrips and starter homes. No infant smiles or playgrounds full of carousels could save us. Round round we go. Never right, always wrong. Longing for more.
Can you hear that sound?
of desolate hearts pounding
Homeless here alone
