PROMISES, PROMISES (photo) & IT HURTS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


it hurts, doesn't it?
to be caught on your own
hook, to stand over there
at a great distance, sucking
on that little bleeding prick
like a baby it's thumb, a hurt you
never expected to get when
you oh-so-casually tossed out
that seductive lure
I all too readily snapped up

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
