Poetry Challenge: Tanka

What It Means

silhouettes stretching

hands held and whispers we share

on bare horizons

that final moment clinging

what it means to say goodbye

Bed space to let.

by Harry

You created me
cut out folded paper
flocked pattern – bird in silhouette.

I crushed crimson your vagaries
Rendered redundant
your flaking effusive generosity.
Stripped you back bare
to the man who now cries himself to sleep.

When was it ever  chiselled in stone
that we should  erect foundations
Leave me spacious blank walls
same suitcase – different hall

Never to be unpacked
no offers accepted…
