Fractured

Posted by Pye in Poetry | 12:11am


strange
how games
were played
numb
as i looked on
at my trust splayed open
at your feet
coloured blood-rust

strange
how screens
came up
wide
when i tried to see
through your lidded eyes
at your soul
peek-a-boo

strange
how talks
lost meaning
bland
even as i spoke
my voice echoing hollowly
around your head
walled out

strange
how lies
were told
fluid
but stuck in my throat
on the way down
to my heart
splintered dreams

strange
how fingers
probed flesh
feeling
for the fresh scabs
talons out
on smooth skin
rip, tear, gash

strange
how arms
shrunk back
detached
as i crumpled face-down
slipping unfeeling  
to the ground
powdered ash
