Peak – for 3 Word Wednesday

July 4, 2010

Here’s a poem I wrote for 3 Word Wednesday. The 3 words were: hassle, inject, wealth

Apex

Laying humid
beneath the hassle
of interaction
our curt conversation
injecting a question
into the schism
between us.

Where once laid
a wealth
too vast to quantify
now we lay
curled
amongst the
tawdry
sniping words

bankrupt.

      Glad you liked it, I tried to think about what word to use to try and balance the wealth that had been previously, and the now impoverishness of the relationships. Bankrupt seemed a good choice.

    This is fabulous! The imagery here is too good! The vacuum after a peak is probably way more stronger and deeper than the elation at the peak!
    I loved this one..
    Thanks, and keep up the good work…

    awesome- the only word that can explain your poem.
    nothing cuts deeper than sudden poverty.
