don’t be afraid
when you see this blade
I don’t want to stay
just be with me
on my very last day
Darina Forgacova Oct 2022
piece by piece I am coming
closer to you
showing me your face
recognizing you
from my deepest dreams

you appeared like angel
in my life
I want you see more
want to feel more
make me feel more
piece by piece

Who said that
watch the moon
but can't touch?

Truly a full moon picture
broke the mirror.
Stacking all of it
the sky fills the full jar.
Empties it though
sparing a piece
to every shining star.

Yet a full moon Kohinoor
eyes on all the stars
no one can touch!

I am forged in a ceramic kiln,
and the sweltering heat embrittles me.
their withering stares set the kiln ablaze,
expecting me to stay rigid and brittle.
I attempted to constrict and be good,
but the fire slowly cracked me.  
the heat still scorches my pieces,
but each piece inches closer
to the outskirts of the kiln
so I can find the sticky glue
and put myself back together.
Escapril Day 20! Prompt: trying to be good.
I had a few ideas for this poem, but I wanted to use one major theme.
I hope you enjoy this one! I loved writing it.

You invited them in
You let them at your table
You let their child play with yours
You let their cat near your dog
You let them wine and dine on your account
You let them bind you and your spouse
You let them put a gun to your head
You let them put your child to bed
You let them take you to their car
You knew what they wanted
You knew you had the answers
You knew it was your fault
At least one of these is a lie
Can you tell which is which?

differentiate between
   the obscure of time
and the real now
   falling forward

no place is here true
   but a piece of what
can be is whatever

i smile and drift
   my mind and this
is but a short poem

i wish you would share a piece of your soul with me
and i wish you would let me share a piece of my soul with you

i wish you knew that ive never wanted to give my soul to anyone
but i want you to know my soul better than everyone

You gave back only a fraction of what I gave. Leaving me to wonder where all the other pieces went.

And I gave you all of me.
