[Poetry] Written Voices

She writes like a jigsaw puzzle,
Complex, intricate,
Learning to appreciate her curves and edges,
As each piece falls into place.

He writes like a destructive tornado,
Leaving so much chaos that no one sees
The lonely flower floating
In the eye of the storm.

I write like a Rorschach blot,
A splat of dark ink on white canvas,
Wondering if I chose the right words,
When I ask others what they see.

And you, you write like only you can,
Your words drumming to the beat of your heart,
So don’t worry about everyone elseβ€”
Pick up your pen and start.

  1. I would gush about the poem, but I don’t think I could add anything that hasn’t already been said (and I totally love it)

    It is, however, good to see you writing again, and I hope you’re doing well in this brand new decade we find ourselves in.

  2. wow Jade, this is a different and wonderful side of your writing. I feel the subtle shifts between the lines and love it. We are attracted to the same and yet different type of writing, I always ask myself why this or that poem means more than others. No matter, your words always have a magnetic pull for me!!

    • Aww, thank you! Leave it to you to notice the difference in my writing. As with all things, our writing grows with us and I’m looking forward to seeing where this new year takes me and my words (and takes you and yours!) No one writes quite like you, Gina πŸ’œ
