Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 3rd of December.~ Over dose.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 3rd of December.
Over dose.

Why ask
No truth
Stems pain
If you
Hear the same lie
Walk
The same path
Again and again.
Words
Are simply
Not an answer
Your heart
Knows the truth
Take time
And listen
To the story
Of how it feels
To break an
Eggshell dream.
No fame
Little glory
Dirty secret
Addictive smile
Broken needle
Harpsichord string
Loving spoonful
Barely tuneful
Banshees sing
And bring
A sweetly bitter
Death.
A guilty lover’s
Tourniquet
Squeezed tight
And a devil’s
Breath
Blows away
Old candles
On the wane
Snuffed out
The final draught
No doubt.
