"Crying Led Me Owing" <Tanka>
Thanks to Peach for pointing out my mistake/mishap on the Tanka structure I thought I would just try to write one the right way... Thank You Peach!!! ^_^
Love is all I know
That's why the pain inside grows
Tears stay at a flow
A leaky faucet that's broke
In every droplet hurt soaked
Drenched in own regrets
Loves' eyes dried up thoughts I kept
Led me to forget
Led me a path that's correct
Led me to a life that's blessed
In return I give
My heart for helping me live
I owe her that gift
I am back to the old days
A prisoner to Love's ways
Re: "Crying Led Me Owing" <Tanka>
I had to search for this poem you wrote... lol Ever since you told me you had written a poem explaining LOVE's hold on you & how it can affect one who is trapped in it's grasp & bring the best of the worst in someone... Meaning that love can bring you out of a slump, but also put you right back in it... That is why in your last couple of stanzas you are "back to the old days & a prisoner of love's ways"...
I must say I am glad I took the time to come visit this site to see this poem you wrote... Thanks for the little hints to look for also even though I don't think I needed them cause, if no one can understand your writing you better believe that I can... ; )
You know that I am fascinated with all your writings cause as the reader you have to loook in between the lines to catch the message...
I must say MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Sorry I haven't visited in a while... Been a lil' busy ( U know) lol Luv' ya'!!!
