A Whale of a Tale by Kim Rumford

Poetry


Tethered

Samantha Moore

I come with a motherís wise,
yielding flesh
and healing embraces
in the guise of a broken child.
Confusing, I know.
But you can bury your weary head in my bosom
and hide behind a notice posted,
which states that you are busy
Saving me.

I wonít tell of your soft spots.
I will collect each of your tears
and drink them down
to hide the evidence.
Your secrets are safe with me.
I am safe within your arms.
Hold tight
lest I escape.

Wonderful, brings to mind personal experience.

I love the sense of both characters in this poem,the sense of the apparent and the secret truths. The last lines work particularly well.
