Worlds in Collision


Worlds in collision
a vision unwelcome
yet sorely needed

Compromise ceded
impeded by circumstance
chance no longer a factor

Stagnation, starvation
for any emotion
apart from frustration

Needs no longer shared
pared until disparate
separate in identity

A perfect storm in
the form of silence
as two become none

When all is undone in
the final fission of
worlds in collision


This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #10:  Image Prompt
~ any poem, in any form, using the image provided by her
~ I’ve chosen free verse, with internal rhyme
