Lost Love

Poet Bonny Conway sent this poem after reading my blog about the death of a relationship. She’s an insightful woman. The poem speaks of getting caught up in false words, something most of us have done. Bonny writes with a poet’s sensitivity and a woman’s realism. She’ll soon have a book of her poems ready for release. I’ll let you know when it’s out.

You are the poem
that pulled the words over my eyes
the one I hid from those who judge
I wrote you beneath my skin
reading you in the dark
where you shine through me
I move across you
sinking into dangerous metaphors
catching my breath between lines
before you tempt me
with mysteries of smoke and shadows
I’ll offer you up to the rains

  1. Your blog is a welcome surprise and I will return to read it often. Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues is not only entertaining but insightful — the progression of “Dixie” out of her grief and the development or non-development of other characters is excellent entertainment. Some of my friends and I think that the Dixie Hemingway series would be a terrific and entertaining TV show as television writing now is so awful and boring. We also think that someone smart and perky like Ashley Judd would make a great “Dixie.” What do you think about that possibility?
    I will look forward to your next book, again, and to Bonny Conway’s as well.
