Daily missive for Friday the 4th of October.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 4th of October.

Comfort has an edge
It comes with conditions
Slicing through old scars
Razor sharp observation
Of the familiar
Cutting through mangled defences
Hastily erected
As self protection
Rusted in place
Barbed and twisted
Tearing at soft flesh
Stripping a memory
To the bone
Every object
So delightfully revealed
A weapon
Of destruction
As the mind meanders
Of its own volition
Through history
Attempting revision
But never winning
That particular war
Never sure if you
Were a victim
Or survivor
Taking solace
In the knowledge
Something of the past
Will always prick
Your conscience
Lance the boil
Bring you back
To the beginning
With the hope
Of a different end
Pain free,
Knowing it will never happen
Outside of daydreams
Will never stop
The futile search.
