red stains

photo from here

the dam burst 

fierce water
floods everything 

she has to break away
before gets crushed

red waters...
she already  bleeding

One sip of wine
the broken pieces are now in her bag

one last sip
before she parts

she looks back
there is nothing left
appart a red stain on the white tablecloths
as a reminder
of that day
the dam broke

contribution for the Theme Thursday. prompt : break

what now?

was just a blink
or i was sleeping for a long time?

What title I should give
to that occasion?

Staring at your photo, you still look kind
just those burning arrows with your name on them
don't make sense

was just a blink
or i was sleeping for a long time?

"what now?" the neon sign 
blinks and asks
and with blinking eyes
I try to see if there are any other words
between the "what" and "now"

is it "what we do now?"
or "what I do now?"

What title should I give to that occasion?

My heart is not glad

The wanderer rests in a shelter.
He obtains his property and an ax.
My heart is not glad.

This describes a wanderer who knows how to limit his desires outwardly,
though he is inwardly strong and aspiring. Therefore he finds at least a place
of shelter in which he can stay. He also succeeds in acquiring property, but
even with this he is not secure. He must be always on guard, ready to defend
himself with arms. Hence he is not at ease.
He is persistently conscious of being a stranger in a strange land.
Richard Wilhelm's and Cary F. Baynes translation "I Ching: Or, Book of Changes"

I dare you

if you dare
crack the iced layer
shutting in your heart

if you dare
brake the mirrored window
concealing the view

if you dare
go beyond the practical hardships
like a tough shell
cutting your way

smash it

if you dare

and dive in
to the core
where the essence lays

if I dare to ask, "dare you?"
a pearl is not a promise.

I dare you to ask, dare I?
to crack the ice
to break the mirror
to see what's beneath

ask, dare I?
you already know
you are broken

abrasive, handful, loss

walks the passageway
to the abrasive's isle
to reach a sandpaper
for rubbing off the un
of an un-handful loss
