Variation on the world gone in three acts


Rudolf von Deutsch – Penelope waiting for Ulysses

so you did it
like I thought you would–

you let me go–

but the one that
never came

was you–


metallic silence
became a metallic knife–

cutting me open
with your absence–


then it’s just me
and i’ll have to do–

kicking fear away
to be gone like you–

Response to a Margaret Atwood poem.

    …to be gone like you. What a way to empower in the face of such an issue.

    ‘cutting me open with your absence’ – oh Nanda, I really feel that. Your writing is always so good.

    I love your new gravatar by the way :).

      Thank you, N! I enjoyed writing this one! Margaret was a great person.
      And thanks for the gravatar! 😉 I’m changing myself and very happy with my new version! xx
