descent…

Ebbing memories,

blurry landscapes, cold shoulders

Tough resolutions.

Fleeting kiss, of waves and shores

Home, elusive and distant.

broken thread

 

Closure heals the soul

The torture of darkness paralyses
Floating, waiting, … suspended

A feast of thoughts,
Harvest of emotions,
A seed is sown

Silence shatters
the essence of communion

Happiness is sacrificed
in the altar of self-importance
singed, threadbare

Time is thrown to the wind

Break the thread
In a bid to raise the trophy
Prove what ultimately?

Relearning the ropes
A page is lost; shortened thread
Doubts mushroom

This pain is real
