The Need for Ease


Hums of serendipity soften the fall

A snapshot of life won’t reveal it all

Souls adrift miss the beckoning call

Desperately we pretend to be believed

Feelings of desolation to be relieved




This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word relieved. Please drop by and join the challenge at Patricia’s Place

    I like this yet feel a certain sense of loss. I think it’s the last two lines.

    Very evocative. I used to fear being alone. I have made peace with it as I have gotten older.

    ez does
    without it
    the presence
    of the invisible
