My poem ‘So long’ is published at Spillwords Press today. I am most grateful to Dagmara and the team at Spillwords for their continued support of my work. Here’s a taster of the poem, which is a bit of a tearjerker:
I will not buy it on my flesh so hard,
no longer will I carry it beneath my skin.
I have been strong, I have been weak
Please head over to Spillwords to continue reading and, if you like what you read, I would be very grateful if you could leave me a ❤️ as a token of your appreciation. I appreciate your time and continued readership!
Best of love,
So Long is very poignant and there is a dislocated shattered feel expressing an emotional break up. Don’t know why but comment didn’t work on Spillwords.
Thank you. I don’t think Spillwords allow comments anymore!
Heartbreaking but beautiful. Some bonds don’t last forever. 💔
Thank you 🙏
Thank you Hobbo 🙏
