Seeking | Poem by Kaye Spivey

by Kaye Spivey I’m searching for a little flicker
beneath the edges of the map looking for a sign of color
something that will mend the gap. Lately dark is growing thick,
wild screaming to be fed, nightly I’ve begun to wonder
if all the madness is in my head. I’m tired for the frightened children
scratch-poor desperate to be seen and for all who deal lives in poison,
salting land that once was green. I’m clenched by claws of panic
stealing breath like goblin slaves, dazed and vaguely groping on
for a route on which this body’s saved. I am losing hope like flower blossoms
casting seeds to frosted ground, I think if light is where I’m searching,
perhaps it isn’t willing to be found.

  1. Hi, I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this poem! Is there ever times that you find yourself struggling to describe emotions when you arenโ€™t able to put words to them, how do you work through that especially when you want to say things in a way that arenโ€™t repetitive to previous works? Although I havenโ€™t yet gotten the chance to purchase your collection, Iโ€™m excited to see more of your stuff in the future ๐Ÿ™‚
