Branded And Brandish


A business ran into the ground
A heart etched on a tree
A game you mastered
A seal on a faulty pipe
A shirt you wear daily
A trick you never forgot
A diary entry ripped out
A silence with volume
A tear squirming down
A look from a friend
A new sound out your lips
A finger tapping your head
A phone call cut short
A pencil you blunted
A scab you keep picking
A feeling so wrong, so right
A list you add to
A puzzle you cannot solve
A pressure without depth
A stone rolling over you

    I love this one. The cadence of the poem really reflect these fleeting moments and feelings that never stop....

    Thank you Frenchie. This is actually the last part in the Brand series as it stands, I wanted to write 60 lines, every 20 lines 100 words (mainly to fit on Drablr, but also to add cohesion)
    I plan to have the Brand poem is total published as a whole piece, ideally. Maybe with some pretty stylings by an artist
