Daily missive for Friday the 12th of May.~ Emotional rescue.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 12th of May.
Emotional rescue.

Take them
Fill your pockets
I lay everything open
Nothing is hidden
Every truth
Exposed
Scattered around
My broken heart
Bruised petals
Fragile blossom
Crushed beneath
The weight of your
Reproach.
Picture me
Stripped of life
Dignity a stale recollection
A faded memoir
All that was meant
Dismissed
A past disposed
Interpretation imposed
With little space to wonder.
Empty me
The glass is almost dry
Barely a tear
To stain the
Polished surface.
Break me
The cracks are there
A little nudge
Along the fault line
Will see your work complete.
Shatter me
If that is all you want
It will be easy
As resistance
Is unevenly spread
And what might remain
Is focused on
Survival.
