Not sure why a man is writing this but hey i am in a strange mood :-)

Glass shards

It's feeding time at the zoo again
her futile words slaughtered
lay laughing at her feet.

So she places her foot
upon the path
and walks between
the shards of glass.

A thought suspended
in her mind
spoke deeply
of another time.

A gentle touch
two hearts embraced
beneath a sky
of silken lace.

The air was cool
the night was long
she drowned within
her lovers song.

But it's just another memory
now far beyond her reach
so she stops and collects all her tears
glass shards
of his deceit.

You have structured this text in a beautiful way, with the rhymed part in the middle (echo of the lover's song she is drowning into?...)
And oh that kind of tears! Though they cut you, you keep picking them up, compulsively, clutching at them...
Sorry, just got carried away. Beautiful poem, as always.

Hauntingly beautiful and brillant imagery!

What a lovely poetic expression you have. All those mataphors you bring in are just out of this world!
Love, it!
And thanks for sharing!

Love, xxx, Zoya
