selfish & humble
waiting for sin
as the best years of my life
crawl into the sea

[the wings left no room for ribs]
The Awakening, Kate Chopin.

"A bird with a broken wing was beating the air above, reeling, fluttering, circling disabled down, down to the water."



By the way, I'd very much appreciateit if you checked out my contest.

Why, thank ya. :) It is a beautiful book--I could read those last few pages over and over...and those ideas about identity & children--that was amazing!

I think I'll add that book to my 'to-be-read' list. :la:

This poem is powerful in spite of how short it is. The ending is beautifully done. <3

^^ That list is far too long for me! 

Thank you. :heart: I really wanted to try to grab some of the power that was in the novel. (Especially those ending scenes where the main character literally just walks off into the ocean.)

empty & unsettled
left purity behind
as the worst moments of my death
climb out of the earth

[the ribs tear open the flesh on my back]

:la: It was depressing--but I kind of saw a victory in it.

 

:D Thanks! I was really hoping to grasp the amazing feeling of that end in my own words.
