“Nailed” (poetry / poem)

Your departure was needed, but still, I’m conflicted,

Since you left me, I feel very different,

You got too big for your boots, to be fair,

To keep you around, would’ve caused me despair.

You were quickly removed, I severed our bond,

A process I’ll have to repeat before long,

But a part of you always remains with me,

My toenail clippings, R.I.P.

🤣🤣🤣 …what a twist right!?! I did NOT see that coming! …who am I kidding, of course I did, I wrote the damn poem! 😂😂😂

Have you ever given any thought to the parts of you that you’ve discarded? Hair, nails, etc. They inevitably end up in a landfill site, and elsewhere, connecting with other people’s discarded genetic material, people that you’ll probably never meet any other way!

Also, think about this, the first human in space, may well have been in the form of minuscule dust particles, containing dead skin, not the much celebrated Yuri Gagarin, or the lesser known Vladimir Ilyushin, (rumoured to have achieved the feat 5 days before the widely credited Cosmonaut, Yuri)!

Yes, I am aware that I have a peculiar mind, which regularly thinks of things that many others would never ponder, but it serves me well in my chosen calling as a writer, and it makes my life (and hopefully that of others) all the more wonderful and entertaining, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! 😉😁

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
