Daily missive for Thursday the 5th of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 5th of April.

String me up
In pearls
Worn around your neck
Frozen tears
Coldly gleaming
A whisper of regard
For such exposure
With little recognition
Of the pain
Ill found in hanging
In such close companionship
With the touch of skin
A blind caress
To be borne a lifetime
Purgatory would be so sweet
Indecorous though
It may be
Do not tear
Lest the threads
Which bind this
Cultured bangle
Snap
The glittering splinter
Of breaking
Will shatter this
Golden dream
A thousand times
The warmth
Of your touch
Gone
Makes brittle
The dry skin
Dust the bones
Little used as ornament
Their polished countenance
Will soon
Be less than memory.
