Called Away

Avatar Author: Princess Binky Lemontwist (LoA) I am the Guardian of the Ink Wells and Head Flight Attendant of Our Strange and Wonderful House. Read Bio

All
empires
fall to others
Your cryptic words
have lost all their glitter
Your garrulous conversation
feels more like a clogged up filter
And now my favorite broken records
won’t stop playing in my old attic
With ballads calling me away
Beckoning me to a ball
and its soft refrain
is just my name
No wonder
I’ll leave
you

    I love this. The Shape thing is great. But the poem itself is lovely- the lines “My favorite broken records won’t stop playing in my old attic and ballads calling me away” is particularly touching.

    Thank you very much :)

    Certainly a barbed little thing, which the ‘shape thing’ (is there a technical term for that? If not there should be) nicely echoes.
