Lick Your Open Wounds (Tanka)

Lick your open wounds

But expect no sympathy

For self-infliction

Brought on by your stone silence

You’ll suffer at your own hands


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

I Was Dazed

I was dazed–confused
Quite unsure of my next move
Questioning what’s right
Intuition said one thing
But logic said another
Which one to follow
Has always been my downfall
Trapped among chaos
I ventured a leap of faith
Letting intuition guide
Instead of safety
I took the dare…
And I won
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Life’s Drama

As drama unfolds

Hiding insecurity

I am wondering

Why do I question myself

When I should just be happy

This tears at my soul

Leaving a hole I can’t fill

Even though I try

Can this be considered fair

In the grand scheme of my life


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
