Hump Day Poetry – Week 4


Hump Day Poetry is a weekly poetry blog-share every Wednesday. Here’s how you can join in

The rules:

1. Write a poem (any type of poetry, even for other challenges) You have from Wednesday to the following Tuesday to link up!
2. Grab the badge and display it on your blog to show your support.
3. Link it to my poem of the week with a pingback or by leaving the link to your poem in comments.
4. Visit other bloggers’ poetry for that week. Like, leave a comment, and share! (Please try to visit as many other poets as possible. Keep the community love flowing!)

Note: to create a pingback, simply include the url of this post somewhere in your post. Please check my page to ensure your pingback has posted. If not, it is either awaiting moderation, or the pingback failed (happens sometimes!). To ensure your post is seen, you may want to just add the link to my page. I would rather have duplicates than not get to read your poetry!

Click HERE for further information. And now for my poem of the week….


My Anchor
~for Lisa D.

O my dear friend
how I long for days’ past
when life was carefree
our greatest struggles
just to fit in
these years as outcast
have hardened me
worn me to bone
a masked skeleton
only your devotion
keeps me here
prevents Death
from his conquest
O how easily I could drift
lose my way upon the sea
you are the anchor
that keeps me safe
my darkened soul
lifted, lightened
by your touch
