Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of May.~ Love and dust.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of May.
Love and dust.

Stretched and dried
A husk
An empty shell
Deprived of purpose
Devoid of intention.
Life leeched away
Into barren earth
Weakened by sub-division.
Every crack
Levered apart
In a relentless attack
A surgical strike
With insistent precision
Deeper than skin.
A heart exposed
Too soon
A fleshless skeleton
Motionless
Unreactive.
Tossed by disturbance
Turned by degrees
Into a formless mound.
A barrow
Barely understood
A shapeless void
In a trammelled space
Lodged between life
And death
Attacked by decay.
Strange fruit
Barely ripened
Disassembled in a disarray
Of saddened report
As the ground
Dissolves
Falling away
Exposing old bones
Un-caged broken spokes.
Bloodied dreams
Turn to dust
And fallen tears
Shed in love
End as rust.
