I wrote this a month back or so....meh, I haven't put anything up in weeks I think....


Glass tears cut their way through
soft flesh and shatter on the cooling coals
of what used to be a warming home

No comforting hug could ease my heart
as the only surviving remains are sheltered
by the memories of family and loved ones
but those memories provide no shelter for me

A fist smashing into the ashes as anger
finally takes control and curses contort my tongue
"Why me," I say over and over again, as my arms
grow weary and begin to buckle after each swing
So I lay in the smoldering embers of what my past has now become...
and weep

The warm sensation on my back eases my pain
and forced chuckling interrupts the tender silence
when remembering that the mortgage was just paid off

The smell of burning flesh fumed into my nose
and the comfortable warm sensation
quickly became a hot incineration
but I just lie there, watching myself fly away
piece by piece
Vivamus mea Lesbia, atque amemus,
rumoresque senum seueriorum
omnes unius aestimemus assis!
