My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

6 STRESS

STRESS
Pressure
overwhelmed

a vice grip takes hold
squeezing every juicy drop
leaving a hollow figure

"state of heart altering strain"



decided to go with a clarity pyramid for this one...seems like i've used this form at least once per month in the past two months so i might as well continue the pattern and include at least one this month...

so i finished the whole thing just to find out i missed the word 'figure'; the seven syllable line originally read, "leaving you an empty shell."  i really didn't want to loose the word 'you' in the line, but...  anyway, this poem was inspired by Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>figure, juicy, stress].

  2. Perfect description--been there a time or two myself. I've found that a nice Merlot or cold Sam Adams can often refill the "hollow figure." But that's just me!

  3. You really portrayed the feeling of 'hollowness' ('squeezing every juicy drop')..the words were powerful no matter what the poetic form..Jae
