Untitled, Erica Schlaefer

By Erica Schlaefer

Blended words and blended beats
My heart’s concave it needs release
Empty cells nestled near
Absence stirs the mood of fear
The body yearns to seal its fate
And awaits its chance to create
Somewhere lost I might not gain
I’ll nuzzle through despair and pain


about the poet.
Erica is the President/Founder of Parenthood for Me. She blogs at Parenthood for Me.


  1. I really like this, and how tight and compact it is highlights the idea of nuzzling down into the pain.

  2. this is just beautiful, and telling at once Erica. It had me gripped from the first line.

  3. Thank you for featuring my poem.
