Reflecting on Poetry

THEME: ReflectionsInterpretations and Musings
I chose to reflect on dysfunctional relationships
Apologies, it's not festive or warm and fuzzy,
I'm afraid, but I hope it packs a punch!

    Happy Holidays!


  4. Not a festive poem but a good one. I have an award waiting for you on my blog. Happy Christmas! Catherine

  5. Great poem! I don't always 'get' poems, I'm embarrassed to say, but I 'get' this one!

  6. Ow!! Methinks it's time for couples' therapy!!

    Fabulous caustic and passionate poem of love gone very very wrong! Thank you! take care

  7. As always, I really enjoy your poems, Madeleine.

    And thank you again for the award.



  8. Thank you everyone.
    I took the idea from a book by Phil McGraw called 'Relationship Rescue' that applies to all sorts of relationships, not just the married kind. I represents a love gone wrong between other relatives. ;O)

  9. You are welcome Michael.
    I am glad you got my poem Cinette.
    I try to make my poems down to earth rather than romantic and obscure though sometimes I get carried away.
    I guess the theme could be seen to be appropriate for this time of year, considering certain statistics at Christmas. ;O)

  10. "In the no-win illusion / Of your bottomless pit." Love it!


  11. ouch! this hurts... and you expressed it so easily. mines here- http://fiveloaf.wordpress.com/2010/01/23/painted-hallways/
