Walk Away (inspired by Surviving Picasso)

Picasso
Why shocked?
Expecting diamonds,
a jeweled crown,
love?
No tiaras here, only
burlap sacks of unused respect you wear on hips and under eyes;  gravity doesn’t lie, here.
Wrinkles too, etched with rough charcoal truths;
it’s not pretty at dusk, under swirling gray clouds,
in shadows, alone.
Welcome to the Minotaur’s labyrinth,
wasted cubed objects of consumed passion;
as if you didn’t know.
But come near,
feel cold glass,
read my bloodless lips,
listen to yourself,
Walk away.
Walk away.
Walk away.

  1. These lines are amazing:Wrinkles too, etched with rough charcoal truths;it’s not pretty at dusk, under swirling gray clouds,in shadows, aloneAt 51, I'm closer to dusk than not and am ever amazed at the aging I see. I do believe, however, that the wonder of me at this age far exceeds the disappointment of lost youth/beauty.

  2. Powerful images conjoured up in this one.I don't know if it's just me, but I swear there's a face in that there tree…on the right!Nicely done.

  3. 'Wrinkles too, etched with rough charcoal truths;it’s not pretty at dusk, under swirling gray clouds,in shadows, alone.'Lovely lines. As I age I prefer dusk to full daylight. lol The twenty something I was (many years ago) doesn't look good in bright light any longer. 🙂 Thanks for commenting on my blog. I appreciate your visit.
