Daily missive for Wednesday the 14th of March.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 14th of March.

If you can see me
Roll your eyes
A whisper in my head
Itching like a violin bow
In an infant’s hand
Scraping across dry strings
Shadows jump
When the wind blows
Pulling at the sash
Of the window
Hush now baby
I hear the cry
It leaves me feeling holy
There is no substance
Only a feeling
Gothic black
A hungry wolf
With an empty stomach
Waiting for the blood
To fall out of a sky
Heavy with the symbols
Of sorrow
Somewhere in the fog
Of lost dreams
Between the fibres
Of broken sleep
Choked deathly gray
By tendrils of yesterday
And the dry root
Of an old memory
Where sightless night
Is moulded into a softer
There is the remnant
Of a smile
It warms the air
Lightly tickles the hairs
On my neck
Turns my inside out
It is the completion
Of an unmade promise
The comfort
In a breathless kiss
It warms the blood
Easing the keening
Of a riven soul
In need of healing hands
A welcome cup
To melt hearts
With a gentle word
To aid the growth
Of understanding
