Please Read my pieces of poetry on I WRITE HER/ THE SHORT OF IT

© Photograph and Poetry by Joni Caggiano

Sadness Moans 

shooting pain lurches like a stranger in the blackest night

where monsters live releasing their copies, swarming past, out of sight

jealousy walks on rugged stones stealing from the gifted

holding hands of small cactus plants until the desert sands are shifted

behind their peering eyes a Judas runs to throw a stone

whiffs of his betrayal, climbing to the top of the field, I hear his moan

To continue reading this piece and many others please go to I Write Her/The Short of It with Susi Bocks.

  2. Your words of pain are sharp, deep cuttings that can be felt within your every phrase. You have exposed,, shamed and drained pain down to the soul. The best that pain can do now, is to release healing energy. Blessings and love always. )))💗(((

    1. Wow, it is hard to know what to say when someone reads that many poems and then writes such a comprehensive and beautiful comment about what you are trying to say. I am sorry for the long delay. I have been off line a bit. I hope you know I appreciate this very much and it touches my heart deeply. One must not only forgive but love even more. You get it completely, bless you and your lovely heart. Hugs and love, Joni
