THROWBACK FRIDAY- Is It You – Linda Lee Lyberg

Is it you 
standing amid the jagged remains 
of my scarred broken heart?  

Nothing new, rather a familiar ocean of salt 
my shattered spirit fights surging tides as I drown in 
waves of my oldest friend – “Oh, hello Sorrow. It’s been awhile.”

  1. Linda,

    Once again… an awesome image!

    And then the poem, wow, just wow. You really capture anguish so well with this poem. A familiar ocean of salt… and Oh, hello Sorrow… really give this feeling of despondency that one feels when the heart is breaking/broken.
