catch the teacup


china teacup falling freely

time slowing down…

shattering, scattering shards


salty tears trickling

from eyes, from soul

fingers trembling, trying to undo


eyes smoldering, shooting hateful darts

darts piercing, cutting, tearing

my wounded, bleeding heart


remorseful words

forgiveness pleading

alas, those ears not hearing


sorrowful glances

forgiveness begging

alas, those eyes not seeing


hasty words, angry acts

joyful friendships

shattering, scattering


tender bonds

kindred spirits

once though one; now are two


halt the words

end the hate…

catch the teacup

About bjdonaldson

I'm an average woman who enjoys reflecting on life, writing poetry and ponderings, and having a good laugh. DIY, baking, and cycling are fun, too. If you visited me, I'd invite you in for a cup of coffee and a little chat. I am a Literacy Coach, Reading Specialist, and former classroom and Reading Recovery teacher at an elementary school. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.
