Darkness, or: Impenetrable

A dark limerick

The life of the party, ol' Vivacious Viv,
Would dance like she had no f**ks to give;
But afterwards, her mood would fall;
She'd slam into that tall, dark wall...
Few knew that -daily- Viv had to choose to live.

d’Verse poetics: Choice

At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to craft poems in any style, form, meter, syntax, rhyme scheme, line length, or formatting โ€“ having to do with the concept of choice.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. So sad. Reminds me a little of Simon & Garfunkel’s song “Richard Cory”. We have listened to it in the car so many times in the last 3 years but it was only last week that I concentrated on the lyrics.

  2. There are people like that, I am sooo fortunate that it’s not me.
    The one(s) who helped her get this way should be in prison, for a long time.
