Daily missive breaks into the weekend. Saturday the 25th of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend. Saturday the 25th of April.

It is hard to salve pain
When it hides
Beneath the surface.
Weeping into the space
Between times.
Seeping across layers
Of memories
Laid low,
Squashed by a weight
Of history
And disrupting
The smooth transition
Of feelings.
It is a barrier
To new connections.
Creating
A corruption that festers
With interference.
Happiness is a fleeting
Intolerance,
Dissolved
Before it is discovered.
Pain, hidden,
Exists to
Protect the deepest hollow.
The hole,

That blackens your heart
With a vacuum,
Subsumed by the bleakest
Taste of fear.
And every sweet spasm
Numbs the chance
Of correction.
As it continues to dwell
Within the nucleus
Of every mutant cell,
It develops
A deterrent against growth
And new direction.
Miring itself
In a deep well of guilt,
It denies any foundation
To the construction
Of a new bridge,
Built from hope.
A bridge
That would span the tears
In the fabric
You have used
To cover your soul.
