Complex Designs

I admit, now and then,

to letting disappointment glisten

like dew on my temples

over “the one that got away”

—a web of singular drops of water

reveal complex attempts to secure a meal

the instinct of a spider betrayed—

a famished, unrepentant creature,

I hold no loss too small to regret.

  1. I love the feeling this conveys, the idea of seeing myself in such an honest light. Beautiful.

  2. So honest. Strip me bear in the sight of God as to my self is grasping at times. Beautiful poem Dayna.
