The Abyss-Poetry Battle Friday

Every Friday on Twitter there’s a Poetry Battle going down. Last Friday, the topic was “Abyss,” and I was stunned my tweet was chosen as the winner. I’ve linked my winning entry below.

This week, the topic is “love.” You can join in on twitter by searching the hashtag #PBF, and adding your response below the host, @JDGreysonwrites, message.

Years of collage crumbles
off the crooked sides
of a paper mache abyss.
The creative cliffs we scaled
as young lovers,
paintbrushes in our mouths,
combining the wet tips
to create new colors.
Picassos in our passion
endless strokes now
in decay.
Our romance rotted canvas.
