Redemption (for deverse-In Haphazard Fashion)



Shadow cast
in the luminous flicker
of a feigned smile.

How the voice coils
in retreat, waiting on
itself for a carefully
chosen word-

In hopes of warding off
the pernicious warmth
of a lie told to bar entry
beyond the door

where all I have hidden
waits for redemption.

  3. How the voice coils
    in retreat, waiting on
    itself for a carefully
    chosen word- very powerful... like when you're at a loss for words, or don't have the words to say exactly how you feel..

    Great word craft Lisa! That is true! One often times get on the wrong foot and has to retreat and think before responding with damage control.
