    On the days of rains
    when we were engaged
    in our own mindstorms,
    in flashing one another
    smiles split in half, shooting
    each other dead
    with bullet looks

    My sorry eyes and their
    glistening pink hue
    you could easily replace
    with tender embrace
    if you’d have wanted to
    But I bubble-wrapped
    my heart in a boyish move
    kept it ‘this way up’
    and all the while
    you ignored the note
    on the box you tossed:
    Handle with care, fragile.

    And when I turned my back
    away to be on my own
    It was only to feel left
    a little less alone.

    Dear Moments;

    Gawd, I love it!:smile: You just keep 'em coming, don't you? You've not been on much, but when you are you really 'zap' us with your stuff.:eek:hmy:

    thanks for sharing!

    Awwww, auntie least.

    Thank you kindly.

    Seems you are my sole reader (or appreciator, if that is a word, which I'm certain it isn't).

    I couldn't have picked a better one.

    Love and hugs x

    No legacy
    no mark, no scar
    nothing left

    Just rot
    just rust into dust
    just this
    just death

    Mindful silence
    soundless violence
    muted words
    quiet drives us
    while it pries us
    unraveling threaded seams.

    Auntie - no need to worry - just outpouring. Sorry if I caused concern.

    Curtius - nice to see you on here. Hope all's ok with you.

    Moments x
