Down To The Bones Of It #DVersePoets #Quadrille

Spent an evening smashing holes

in the walls you’d fixed,

and smoothed with filler.

Waited for the dawn to discover

the bones of this house

now naked of plaster.

Wondered if I looked as broken,


If I would catch light

just as quickly.






  1. If I catch your drift, this relationship was on its second go-round, and it failed again, making things twice as raw; a powerful piece.


  2. You’ve described in words, the destruction of a failing relationship and how very hard it is to rebuild. Disturbing words here….but perhaps the light imagery in the end is the hope of becoming oneself and independent health.
