no name for this

moon’s patch on the doorstep

won’t shape your shadow

now that afternoon’s been crushed

by the slam of metal into blood

 

cooling

go now darling go

 

your gaze a total wild of love

before the screendoor

closed, memories untouched

by the chase of metal into bone

 

again

and again we break

 

 

this started out as a challenge on critical poet but i couldn’t use the ten words offered … didn’t even mean to write this really but my heroangelcat was killed on the road a few weeks ago whilst coming to greet me from the car .. guess i needed to try and write something but this is nothing like a tribute … maybe that will come when i am free of selfish tears

i love you, Rusty

    I see your heart ripped open so vividly, almost too vividly, my heart breaks for you.

      i logged on this morning to remove this post, or make it private, La Lunatique …

      yes, perhaps it’s too ripped open for a reader to find bearable?

      i don’t know now .. maybe i’ll just leave it alone, watch time turn the page?

      Thank you for reading and bearing, dear soul …
