Searching Times Three

Magpie Tales

Searching for faith, hope, and love
Feeling fancy in our best dresses.
What a lovely family the dark robed
woman says as we leave, creepy 
tumbles to mind as I pretend 
not to hear her raspy voice, old age.
I walk to church every week, and 
yet I feel no faith toward mankind.
No hope of an ever after, a better place.
The only love I found so far
radiates from the parking lot 
of the liquor store, facing the gym. 
It is an unconditional love, not demanding.

  1. Thank you for stopping Tess.

  2. Thank you. Sometimes my poetry takes a dark turn even when I don't exactly start out with that intention.

  3. Thank you. It seems life would inspire me more but I needed a break. Thanks for stopping by Ann!

  4. Powerful statement…

  5. Good work. I didn't respond to the prompt this week because I knew it would take me to dark places, but you did it beautifully. Nice write.

  6. This is a dark and chilling revelation. It is good to see you posting.
