Doubt seeps in and it seers the mind

Implications of absence dismay

Mystified, obfuscated by all

Textures drift and the present unbind.


Pulling threads from the hem of my skirt,

Lips stained burgundy… remnant of hope

That the timepiece was wrong.  He will come.

His escape a success. Him — unhurt.

    • Thank you, Kavalkade, and for the other comment too. For some reason I can’t seem to be able to write a direct reply to it, but yes – a rather more serious situation indeed.

      • Weird. The comment is visible? But you can’t reply? So I’m not flagged as spam like Opinionated Man then.

      • One comment appeared as for the message, and the other as for the image. There is no reply button for the one left on the image part. I don’t know if that’s the case for all image messages or if it is a technical glitch.

      • Ohh, weird. Yeah I commented on the image accidentally, haha.

        I’m not sure either, never commented on an image or had a comment on my blog images before.

      • Should be able to see it in Dashboard ~ Comments at least.

        That’s how I posted it on the image file of course, haha.

        C’est la vie. It’s a minor inconvenience.

      • You’re keen (there’s that word that comes so readily when I think of you)! The last one on slavery I put out earlier this wk was the longest I’ve taken between posts. (I grumbled and grumbled to husband.) I spent over a week writing it in snatches (midst the busyness) and had started thinking on it a few months back.

      • I look forward to reading it. It is a subject that can never fully be exhausted and each time someone takes it on, there are bound to be new insight to be gained.
        Working on another post at the moment, but as soon as it is done, I will read your post (it is already opened and ready).
        Warm regards,

  3. A powerful image of absense, loss and almost a desperate hope. I’m a bit caught in two minds here – is ‘seers’ a typo, or is it meant in the context of foretelling? For me it actually seems to work really well (though a little differently) both ways.
