Wine and Roses












And still




Scent of denial
Fragrant, cloying
Skeleton of our life
Doing double time

And still

A shattered remnant
Remains vital enough
To jostle memories
Of wine and roses

This piece was put together for 3WW and also for dVerse  both are good places to go and see some work by some very talented poets.

joanna said...

there's something so suggestively dark and mysterious about this...

Very nice. I have one called "And Still" too. There is something about those words.

Wander said...

Thanks all!

This reminds me of the movie, and how alcohol robs so many of their best selves. Very evocative of loss and perhaps regret.

kj said...

you are a deep thinker, chris, and yet you convey your thoughts and experiences in such simple language.

and the word cloy! i'll find a way to use that somewhere !

memories. i used to think they existed in the past, but now i know better.

happy weekend mr wander

Love this: "Scent of denial
Fragrant" and your final thought as well.

the scent of denial is a great opening line...and sadly the alcohol will rob...

I suck at interpreting poetry...
maybe I'm not deep enough, or perhaps I'm too literal, or maybe just dense. However, I trust your words. They are always believable and so...here, I believe there is pain.

OH... and I learned a new word: cloying

Wander said...

@ all thank you for your comments...
Shannon you are very close...I am blunt with a lot of my poetry...a lot of it has very personal meaning and I guess I am not a patient poet even though I try to write in a general way I don't try to intentionally obfuscate so as to sound grandiose or deep. just me...
