Poem: Senryu (5,7,5) – “Separately  Together” #introtopoetry #amwriting #senryu


Thanks to The Daily Post for the words Layers and Autonomy. Also for Poetry 101 the prompt is imperfect and Limrick. I’ve chosen not to do limericks.

——

Obvious is it? 

No one has clarity,

Only shadows.

—–

Glancing upon you,

I search through layers,

Facates hid inside.

——

Peeling back your words,

Paint shows original coat.

What’s left; I adore.

—–

Thought you could mask truth,

Thought you could delve deeper in,

The light reveals all.

——

Fear for yourself and —

Your autonomy might lose,

Love is freedom too.

——

Keep autonomy,

But also be us both; one. 

Separate, stay close. 

——

Give autonomy,

To me too; so I can breathe,

Inhale, no traps laid.

—–

 I’ll lose my layers,

If you lose all of yours; let fall —

Let skin talk tonight. 

—–

Dozing in the light,

Truth a battle call given,

Peace where we inhale.

——

Imperfect are we,

Flawed and marked; but love sees all,

Sees only beauty.
