Black and white

photographs pluck

the tears from my eyes

Etched memories

never dissolve or fade

cherishing every kiss

Reminiscing the last

fifty years of preciousness

Embracing every second

Through the heights of

the golden mountains

and blackout valleys

Love never once

sat in the shade

In sadness and melancholy

I have to leave

Mulholland Drive tonight

I spent a lifetime

in this brick castle

with my beloved queen

May she Rest In Peace

as my heart is in pieces

B had asked to me to use this title for poem. 😊

Hello All,

I would like to take this opportunity to promote or a better word of choice is “appreciate” the author Kindra M. Austin.

Kindra displays brutal truth in her poetry. It is full of raw emotion and does have an occasional curse word, but it’s incorporated to make a strong point or message. She is also a member of a prestigious literary group Sudden Denouement: A forum for Divergent Literature. This is a well diverse collection of authors.

Please check out her novel “Magpie in August.” Amazon

I dare you to move an inch
Quiet as I stand and remain calm
I loathe the essence of your aroma
Watching your words like a hawk
I challenge you to raise your voice
Reserved as I sit and remain still
I detest your point of view
Staring at the soulless scarecrow
I defy your small perspective
Restraining myself and biting my tongue
All you are is cruel spit
