Spikes and Leather

Spikes and leather
hard edgy exterior
hiding the core – soft centre
precious pearl inside the oyster
pinprick of light
in the dark fabric of life

  1. Hi Nathalie, I’m going to borrow a description from one of your prior posts – tingly. A sultry way to juxtapose the hard and edgy from the soft and precious. I’ll stop blathering now. 😀

    1. Well, Matt… “you better shape up” because I’m Nat and solely Nat, not Sandra D! 😛 LOL
      Also, you haven’t said anything about the words, not my finest I admit, but…I quite like “pinprick of light in the dark fabric of life” (which Pepper mentioned, pleasing me no end)…yay? nay? 😉

      1. Oh wow…think me not shallow please. I was just finishing lunch and my boss opened my office door up. I tabbed screens quickly and when I tabbed back I just hit send and closed the window. I feel like a shallow jerk now… That line is deep…totally my taste! I do love the entire piece and how you perfectly describe that no matter how rough around the edges things/people are or appear, the shell could be hiding something FAR greater.

      2. Matt, I was kidding! Winding you up! I know perfectly well that you’re anything but shallow and anything but a jerk, in fact I think you’re an amazing guy as well as a fantastic writer 🙂
        Oh man, I should have written a big fat warning at the top of my comment: “I’m comfortable enough with you to write a teasing, funny response” 🙂

      3. Still…my initial comment did not appropriately encapsulate my thoughts. So for that I apologize. YOU are an amazing writer and an amazing gal! No s’cuse me while I go write a “method” poem (¬_¬)….lol

  2. Nathalie, your words and your image hold hands so perfectly! I love the brevity of this poem, however, I will mention that in no way is it short on thought, bravo! I really like what’s said, what’s left unsaid, and how it’s bravely implied. I mean really who can’t read this, think about what is shared here, and then not take it a step further, and a have a good hard look at themselves. Wonderful imagery, I especially like the following, “pinprick of light/in the dark fabric of life”. As always a pleasure to enjoy your posts, and think about your words long after they have been read! Please enjoy the rest of your day!

    Take care,
    Pepperanne

    1. Pepperanne, your comments always make my day! I also LOVE that you picked out my favourite line! Coming from such a wonderful writer as yourself, your words can’t help but give me a high.
      Thank you very much for reading and sharing your thoughts (and giving me that high lol)
      I hope the rest of your day is also beautiful and inspiring.
      Warm wishes – Nathalie
