Written by Blue-Eyed Devil
Blinding, liquid light,
Steals and drinks luminescence,
Thirst never sated.
Written by Wasteland Explorer
To someone whom you adore
But yet they walk all over you
and break you to the core.
just cut you through and through.
Yet never even realize the hurt that they can do.
to what their feelings say.
And keep on crunching through your soul,
until you waste away.
These two splendid poems have been joined together as part of our Short Poetry Spotlight this month. Blue-Eyed Devil’s Haiku XXX – he’s written quite a number of these – gives us much food for thought, while new contributor Wasteland Explorer opens hearts to sore wounds, giving us the title of the piece. If you enjoyed their works, make sure to leave a like or comment below. You can also view more intriguing poems from our short poetry selection with Duality in the Beginning and Mattress & Graffiti.
