Wholesome Holes

Wholesome Holes short poem

Photo by geezaweezer

Souls leave no shadows
And no more shades either
For, they remain in those
Moth eaten sepias as relics of
Those we have loved once
And killed many times over
Souls leave holes only
Wholesome holes; say some in mock jest,
In wry smiles and ever dried up pearls.
Abandoned shadows on wanderlust
Ever on an unrelenting search for shells to nestle in
Knowing little that nothing indeed fits in.

Holes short poem

Fall in a hole and you’ll never get out Unless there’s a ladder, or someone to pull you out But you can’t take the chance You can’t take the risk They’re basically the ones who got you in this mess
