Poetry 101 Rehab: Partitions

draw the curtain
in pencil –
soft and light.
gauzy and floaty at
the faintest disturbance,
it does not fulfill its role.

hang fabric from
a hook –
haphazardly jabbed
into a ceiling.

(safety-pin a second
in place)

draw the curtain
in pen –
thick, more solid.
it’s the kind that
renders detail null.

hang fabric from
a row of hooks
carefully hammered into
the ceiling.

(see, it’s all meant
to keep you

only fabric tears
with age
wears threadbare
day after month after year.

(just keep them

now you see me –
now you

  1. The feelings are so familiar.
    I like the way how you always express yourself and all those feelings every time. I guess, that#s what makes your writing style so special.
    I am impressed every time I am reading another of your posts.


    1. *blushes*

      Thank you so much! Expressing feeling and emotion are important to me, and that definitely carries over into my writing – not to mention how they just might be familiar to someone.

      Thank you again!
