3-5-3

 
On this night  
rolling storms cast out thieves  
of ill repute  

༻  

Darkness skulks in  
blanketing all that's held dear  
highlighting truth's dominion  
 
༻  
 
Warm nostalgic memories  
course through my mind's eye  
remembering past love  
 
༻  
 
Stay with me  
this night and all following
 
whispered pleas bemoan  
 
༻  
 
Happiness is fickle  
easily turning on a dime  
lost in obscurity  
 
༻  
 
Permeate this soul  
i quietly beg salvation's sustenance:  
restore me, whole  
 
༻  
 
Within a blink  
it all was completely rewritten  
without any permission  
 
༻  
 
Ghost arms tighten  
'round brittle hollowed out bones  
supporting every breath  
 
༻  
 
Stars caress— beckoning  
lifetimes reflect in glittery sooth  
from each twinkle  
 
༻  
 
To be strong  
an understanding weakness isn't weak  
it's strengthening character  
 
༻  
 
When it's good  
the sheer breadth of it  
is purely incalculable  
 
༻  
 
Time eventually reveals  
the reality of buried gospel  
.  
.  
.  
nothing stays secret

This is the accumulated effort of most of my poems from just the 3-5-3 category of the Word Play group. I have randomly been posting them throughout the almost two years+ I've been a member there. I scrolled through them the other day and decided to copy most of them to arrrange into one whole poem, if possible. What can you say in eleven words, three lines, in a
3-5-3 word count? Well, this is what that one exercise has me saying after all the time. It's a little disjointed because these are separate poems posted at different times, but I think it makes a kind of cool amalgamation. Thanks to Grace, who initially invited me to join the group which ultimately ended up showing me that there is a place on DUP to stretch your creative wings, unencumbered.
