Floetry’s woes…

Clumped in distraught

Through the lampshade

The poet’s defenses flared

As she glared at the old photo frame

That lay broken on the reading desk

Embroidered with memories that

Brought back rapture, glee and glow

Broken pieces of pain, covered with

The sweetest and saddest blends, she stared…

Confused by the depth of her woes

The poet pondered at what lay beneath the closed mind

As she salvaged the remnants of her withering strength

And what was now left except for parchments and papers

Which the poet had strewn with bitter futility…

Chorused in unending fulfillments

Like climes full of sunshine

The poet’s mind was brought to naught,wwwww

A proof sufficient of her vanity…..

As she sat overwhelmed as she tried

To patch the broken pieces together

Weave memories of what lay

once when she thought sane…


Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
