Word of the Day Challenge #60-Untitled Poem

I just had to reblog this poem from Jay-lyn Doerksen.

Her poetry is always so deep and emotional and this one is no exception, the perfect use of the word prompt: Emotional. 🙂

The Wonderful and Wacky World of One Single Mom

Blackened eyes
fattened lip
sit in the corner
he will drink his bliss.
Blinded with shattered tears
long dead turned to ashes
a dark world
captured in sullen silence.
What had she done?
It never seemed to end
the list of evil ills
imagined or real
the sadness
grey mists
a fog she lives in
better than seeing the pity
wrapped on the faces
of all those around.
worms its way through her soul
tattered morality
death is coming
it only matters who he will court first.
A way of life.
Day to day.
Slow rising tide
his time has come to pay.
She stands over
drip drip drip
hits the floor
plop plop plop
sinister grin
she had finally fought
and won
tears slide down her cheeks.
mutterings of a mad hatter
I will show him…

  1. She packs so much raw emotion into her work
    Jay-lyn is super talented…I always feel I need to sit down and calm myself down with a good cup of tea after I read some of her poems.
