RUBBISH

POETRY REHAB 101

RUBBISH

.

Discarded

Put aside

No longer wanted, tossed

Alone

Across a pile of the broken

The outdated, the spoiled

.

Left to mingle and slide

Deep into the stench

Pawed over by claws

Food for the unbidden

The hidden hordes

Spiders, beetles, millipedes and roaches

.

Decay descends

Pieces split away

Slime grows white, green and black

Rain dissolves the remains

Washes away anything

To prove I existed

  1. What an unexpected twist, I didn’t see the ending of the poem coming! You describe the rubbish powerfully, especially in the part with the insects. It’s a well written and deeply affecting poem. Thank you for sharing it!

    • Thank you Aquileana. It is encouraging for you to say so. I am sorry it took so long for me to respond but I have been taken away from blogging to keep up with other activities. Even as I carry out those other activities I am thinking about writing and blogging. I am happy to see your comment as I return to my blog after being away. In love and light Cheryle. Enjoy your week and upcoming weekend
