solitude #poetry

my taffeta dress falling

on the floor

staining the carpet

with the violets of beach pea.

 

your kisses morphing

on my neck

into the loneliness

of sand castles lost to sea.

 

the shining mirror now reflecting

a golden painting of a nude

Márquez is finishing in silence

his hundred years filled with solitude.

reference to Gabriel García Márquez’s work One Hundred Years of Solitude
