An Inch


On a fading sight of beauty
An inch away from tenderness
An inch a way from deadness

    reminds me of a broken heart that longs for that lost love but is gripped with so much fear, they can only dream and wish.

    this is so heart felt.

    Very fascinating. I love how you've captured the barest escape with the repeated reminder of a mere inch and inching away. Delightful. Intriguing as well....seemingly referring to forbidden pleasures. I enjoyed how you depicted it all so cleverly with just an 'inch'....Excellent! (Report) Reply

    poetry is partly emotional that's why your poem is gratifyingly an inch away of grasp...
    it's a good that you're able to grasp the inch of a thought of all of it... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
