    when I try to decipher my
    feelings
    at the moment
    I knew you did not love me:

    I am reminded of
    a delicate vase
    that, in falling,
    I have managed to grasp,
    but
    only but the edge.

    The Edge ...
    It's always (to me) been, the 'do or die point, do I hold on, or...do I let go.
    deep, to the point piece sis.

    I agree Queen, my question becomes what do I do now? Sad to say, but my decisions have not always honored my soul. Yet the same, I prefer to know instead of not know; after knowing, the choices, the decisions, (and sometimes) the regrets all belong to me........

    my Memphis Connection sister mizjoice,

    With this piece, you have successfully defined where I live, regrettably. Is this a Memphis thing or what, lol? Peace in my sister friend.

    Another well written piece.
    I can feel you on this only thing is
    I have found I do not particularly care
    for the edge of anything...


    Much Luv

    Hello Mzjoice...

    I am a fan of short poetry, I enjoy the feel of the punch they pack. I enjoyed this piece, as well as the dialogue it produced,
    Nice write!


    Feelin'it souldeep!
