Daily missive for Wednesday the 6th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 6th of December.

Break me open
Pour me out
I am ready 
To burst
A jumble
Of jagged edges
An old sack
Over stuffed
Filled with sharpies
A tumble
Of broken pieces
Coloured glass
Blood diamonds
Fool’s gold
Easy to reveal
Weightless
In slumber
Lighter than oxygen
Breathe my air
Puncture the panting ego
Open the hole
It is wide enough
To release
The whole story
Without a picture
Tease out
The finer details
Shovel them
Into a furnace
Burn my bridges
I have no need
Of overspill
Too much has been
Made of my
Wasted space
Splinter the fragments
See how they run
Quicksilver
A molten heart
Even at room
Temperature
Cool me
Douse the flame
It will continue
To smoulder
Even in a vacuum
Broken hearts
Still bleed.
