Heel. A poem.

Why concern yourself
with where you walk?
I am just a reed
beneath your heel
cracking until broken,
outlined in your footprint.

I write a lot of poems, some from my head, some from my heart. Many don’t appear on this website. For more of my poetry, check out The All or the Nothing, my first e-book, available at most online book sellers.

I’m a writer who loves tabletop role playing games, poetry and (you guessed it) writing. Occasionally I have something to say...

    1. Hi Lee, we’re all incredibly important. But I’m not sure you got what I meant. In the poem the reed is a metaphor for a person’s feelings, crushed haphazardly by an uncaring other—a partner, friend or enemy. In your statement I think you may have meant ‘the road is what all of us have to walk’, as in the path? 🙂
