Good morning everyone! Please join me in welcoming Jessica Kristie to the Poetry Corner!
Moving Forward by Jessica Kristie from her poetry book Winter Dress.
A reluctant hand let go of mine.
My soul wept.
My body wept.
My skin wailed and ached.
If only time moved in a soothing direction–
that oiled my wounds and eased my pain.
If only blackness didn’t eat at flech and leave bones
brittle with hearts to wane.
She said goodbye.
That memory every now and again…
saves my life.
Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing, Jessica!
