Am Writing, Poetry

Writing Prompt from Our Write Side, Two Word Tuesday (link below)

Chosen Word: “Useless”


Her mind was firm
His speech was useless
What utter nonsense
Spews from his mouth

Frothing spittle from
Firmly uttered words
A one-sided debate
Falls on deaf ears

The endless blather
The desperate cries
With swollen eyes
A voice gone hoarse

For years the pleas

Had gone unnoticed
Neglecting beauty
For one’s own delusion

The eleventh hour
Has come at last
The carriage waits
In weary silence

No backward glance
She passes o’er
The dwellings threshold
Tis no longer home

E. Rae
