"I button up your image

like a worn out coat

that I don't want to give up

it doesn't keep warm

and does not wrap me

but I am a stubborn centenarian olive tree

time passes

those marks, don't.

Hello Read.cash readers!

Work has been stealing a lot of my time lately and I can't post like I used to!

Today I am offering you a new poem hoping you will like it.

My poems are sometimes made up of a few lines in which I concentrate everything.

I know that for this particular social they are not very suitable unless I add a long introduction, in which I concentrate the reasons why I wrote it and to whom I dedicated it.

Over the last 10 years I've had a long period of adjustment alternating with new emotional earthquakes, so it always became very difficult to start over.

Some disappointments don't go away and I had to work a lot on an emotional level to build myself up again but above all to find a balance that was strong enough to withstand new shocks.

I did it and now re-reading some of my poems no longer creates pain, but the knowledge that I have grown and strengthened myself.

It's good to look back, it makes me proud of my inner journey, today I can say I'm no longer the fragile girl I used to be, the one who depended on others. Today I feel like an independent woman who faces every day with new determination and willpower.

I have friends that I love as if they were brothers, with whom I spend moments of wonderful serenity, lightness and joy. And I am grateful to the Universe for giving me all this comfort now that I really needed it.

Thanks for reading.

Your poem reminded me of a song by Mana called "En El Muelle De San Blas" I love the music but the lyrics are in Spanish, with which I am not highly proficient, are quite sad in many ways. So, I don't know if you may want to listen to it .... maybe it is just an echo of a fading memory or a twinkle of a night star. We're simply sharing experiences. Best wishes.

(Edit - I'm a bit drunk at the moment but had one of those quick "existential" insights and the phrase that summarized it best for me was "There are some things that MAY be done, CAN not be done." and it was basically the insight that logic, and things, and sentences that end with their periods. Aren't ever able to describe a future the figurative "box" in which they exists.

The future is too large to fit into a box, as beautiful and precious as those boxes may be in their moments.

Again, best wishes. It seems likely a part of each of us have met before ... or not, you're free, of course :)

My personal addition is simply: Someday ....

Precisely we ought to consistently get things done by own. We ought to act naturally made. We should deal with our concerns alone. Furthermore, it is valid pictures don't talk. Pictures are simply recollections. By the way extraordinary selection of words. Keep it up Write delightful sonnets. Good luck

Exactly we should always do things by own. We should be self made. We should face our problems alone. And it is true images don't talk. Images are just memories. By the way great choice of words. Keep it up Write beautiful poems. Best of luck 👍

Sometimes it is good to look back and see how far did our heartbreaks took us. Retrospection allows us to discover whether our pains make us or break us. Good poem!
