The Queen Of Indifference (Abstract Word & Abstract Poetry WS)

It's coldness that sickens her
the most as it crept in through
the inattentive walls and
started to lurk like a ghost.

It's coldness that sickens her the most;
it wove webs around her thoughts,
and put her brilliant furnace out.
It wore her old silk robes
-the older ones, you know;
those that once danced
in the closet of love.

Today she can finally sit
on the torpor's throne
and wear the lethargy's crown
as she's been admitted there
through the steps of indifference.

Hi Rula...this poem is nice but not sure if it fits into the workshop guideline of Alvin where he wants us to write something about abandonment rather than indifference which I believe is the emotion you have captured in this poem.....dont go by my perception though because I could be wrong...listen to what others would surely comment...

I am not sure as well. I thought indifference could be another face for abandonment, or what I thought. I could be completely wrong.

This one held its meaning well and the use of abstract words flowed well.
I await the others play on the quest,

Thank you dear Ian
I'm happy to know that you think this meets the workshop quest.
As I said not my cup of tea and this what Scott wanted us to do. That is to write something out of our comfort zone.
I am as well waiting for my grade lol. Hope it's not an 'F'
