Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




You want what you can’t have
Reasoning somehow that seems more valuable
Abandoning those who do love you
Because who would want to love you, right?
So you chase phantoms, try to rewrite history
Harvest lost souls like shiny objects, glinting in the sun
All the while they are burning your retina, so you cannot see the truth
The truth that’s been right in front of your face
All along

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #233: Harvest

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  2. Wow. Just…. wow.

    There is an aching, painful beauty to every line of this, its every insight… into others, into self, into the kinds of tragedy we try to turn into love.

    Among the very best things you’ve ever written.
