Table Top

Sage Doyle

I see my hand spread broad across the table top

empty upon the flat of my palm

with nothing to grip but the energy of my conviction

without a source to comfort the calm

and the swallowed voices of the years ahead

a golden lashing across the table

slashes my hand in a band of shadows

breaks my mind as my urges are fed

golden shades turning amber

turning gold and dark again

the bending dusk imparts the room

branded, awaiting my moments of pain

no thoughts are left, no more to hold

swollen from the passing day

bearing each moment to come, each time foretold.

  1. It is a very nice gesture to feature a
    piece of poetry by Sage Doyle, he is
    without a doubt an excellent writer 🙂

    Have a good day today my friend…


    And for sage I offer you this…

    This is well written my great friend,
    I don’t venture out of my own Space
    very often these days but I do read
    your work, of course I should frequent
    more of my friend’s Spaces, it is only
    right and fair to do so…

    Hopefully on my return I will do just that…



We'd love your feedback!
