Empty Illusions

Texte: that never fit into the distant waves – Puzzle Dust by Dorianne Laux

An odd piece left in the box
like the scrap of nothingness on a boot
scraped on the doorstep of rejection
while hostile imaginings disguised in affection
offer words of love used as bait
to hook the dejected soul
that flounders in the ocean of heartbreak
still seeking resolution
and bouncing on dry stone walls
taking chances before soothing senses
until time brings realization
some pieces will never fit the picture

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
