My first flash poem

Thanks for the challenge, Tim! Mine’s about blood and life in its own way.

Miss

You’re every song
Choking, even in synth-string plucks
Delicious, though,
To miss you.

So I listen.

Piano sequences fester
Feelings so open and raw
Tiny hammers don’t let scabs form.

Even scars can be split with a voice
Run through with its own wounds.
Ache is universal, this sweet
Something we can share.

    Evocative.

    Rhyme on!

    I love the pause, and then, “So I listen.” It’s like that quiet before the storm, and then there’s the flood of emotion, or depending on the interpretation, something else going on. *winks*

    My favorite line is the one Tim pointed out. Sensual, indeed, Margo. I *really* like this.
