"Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks." Simonides, 6th-5th century, B.C.
Very touching. This poem is packed with a resigned grief.
i like the ending especially... after I read the title again, I was wondering where the "twisted" comes into the poem?
This hits home. Good work. I'm here from PWB.
Poignant...haunting. Great site!
Thank you all for your kind comments. Brian, here's the "twisted" part: the anguish, the fear and the hope felt between two familiar people that want to say something to each other but fear the words, the emotions and the unknown. So they sit, knotted up and resigned to endure the silence.
