-the picture hangs a wall-

The picture

hung a wall today

from gallows

a thousand words can't explain

The picture

simply felt denied

of the color

that would highlight

  • L. B. Mek

    'paling, is sad state
    for our iconic, hope's
    especially, those
    we once framed and hanged
    with such assured, fervour
    in those frail, walls
    of our hearts...'
    an intriguing read
    thanks for sharing, dear poet

      Intriguing, and I love thinking about this one. Perhaps complementary in meaning between the picture and the wall? I have the thought for the day, thank you.

        Wow this is quite profound. I mean normally it'd be the other way around, a picture is hung on a wall, but I think I'm grasping the metaphor. I assume this "picture" is a person being hung on a "gallow" for a reason I can't seem to pinpoint exactly, but I love your creativity. Really well done!

          It was really about peoples vanities not being highlighted when they think they should be and so on,first world problems being so blown out proportion it's mind boggling,I love when poems take us all to different places.,always thanks for reading and commenting.take care
