Push Pinned

You cradle my likeness
In the palm of your hand
As you push pins
Deep into it's heart
Jabbing... Jabbing... Jabbing
Until you are certain
Nothing more remains

  5. Sounds like tortured love, a broken heart. The metaphor is very strong and vivid. Fortunately, hearts do heal in time and become whole again :)

  8. Definitely not Pinterest. Although I've seen some pins on Pinterest that would apply.

    Great image -- both the picture and the word painting.

  9. That's definitely not Pinterest we're talking about here.

    Great image -- both the photo but, more importantly, the metaphor in the poem.
