135 ~ the New Blueprint

When the battle scars start fading
Stitch armor vests around your heart
When bullet cases fall from firing
You’ll turn your pain into an art

You had the blueprints to my body
Mapped your feet all over the chart
You had the key to the secret garden
Now you’re locked out from that part

Time to take this silly rough draft
Full of holes from cupid’s darts
Time to create a better prototype
Give myself a fresh new start

Raising ink from the blank pages
Uninhibited, yet still on mark
Raising the voice from my own phoenix
That had laid dormant in the dark

  1. Dang woman…this gave me chills! Yeah, to the New Blueprint. You deserve only the best, Brit. Since I haven’t been here in awhile I’m probably behind the times, but I love the new header πŸ™‚ You are the Phoenix!

  2. A powerful poem, I felt the pain. Thank you so much for dropping by wePoets. We would be honoured to showcase your work should you want to share. I see my partner in crime, Kira has already been here. πŸ™‚

  3. Such a beautiful way to illustrate the thoughts….!!
    The imagery of a life encompasses your poem…Life, battle, love, violence, hope…..oh such thoughtfulness….!!
    Depiction of a thoughtful post modern mind…!! GREAT

  5. Feeling the pain as I read this powerful poem. You are amazing and extremely gifted in your writings! You always capture my attention!

  6. Just noticed your latin inscriptions…..praying that the healthy mind is in a healthy body; the other one….hmm… Virtue undergone for a tranquilil life. Or something. Sounds elegant the last one which is why I probably have it upside down, but it sounds like one of the stoics….. virtue bringing its own peace and all that….

  7. Oh – I like this one, especially the way it ends – so positive! πŸ™‚

    And finding the key to someone’s heart isn’t difficult, but keeping hold of it seems to be the impossible task, for some anyway! 😦
