Cold Winter’s Bite… by Jodie Lynne

No matter how much I put in…

How hard I did try…

Right back down

this mountain I’d slide…

I’ve climbed and

I’ve crawled…

Had faith, I believed…

How well I took life’s test

karmas from Eve…

Told myself never quit…

or never I’d gain…

Worth it this fight…

I bore all my might…

Picked thorn woven weeds

filled purely of pain…

Maybe I went too far…

Took a wrong trail or two…

Left…I am here…

Damning fate who already knew…

Foreseen was my future

she holds in her grip

same end it does seem…

Maybe my character once questionable…

Maybe my motives once unclean…

Surely she sees greatest all efforts

this queen all unseen…

I put all that was left…here…

I went out on a whim…

Judgment’s cold harshness

tears through my skin…

Stuck…in…

hells…I created…

Life battles again…

Falters and falls… seems the only win-win

this damn endings forever…

lost in the cruelest of winds…

Forever this fairy tale needs simply to end…

F—Cinderella and f—Snow White…

I’m left here alone…in fate’s cold winter’s bite.

  1. Glad you liked “house divided,” Jeanne Marie. Been thinking about that quote from Lincoln recently, due to the damaging divisions in our national government. Best to you and yours.

  2. Thanks for liking “skin departure” and for sharing your daughter’s powerful poem, Jeanne Marie. It’s been said by smarter people than I that the root principle of narrative art lies in the wish for the return of something valued, which has been lost. Unless I’m mistaken, I sensed the energy of that principle while reading that poem. Very best to you and your talented daughter.

    1. Thank you. Yes we share a valuable love of writing, all of my children write and even a few of my grandkids. My mom wrote and I like to think the love of reading and writing is a positive trait we all share. Have a great day, Jeanne Marie
