wordlessness

wordlessness …

shards of everyday life
slice through

cleaving
flesh

splintering
bone

battering the ramparts

chiselling away
incessantly

endlessly

shaving off pieces
bit by bit

tearing muscle

frying synapses
charring hope

with
only the
inevitability of endlessness

the tide of desolation

washing in
soaking dreams in diesel

fueling storms that rage within

deep
inside yourself

where there is only you
where all the pain
all the loss

feels

at least
true

dreams fade
eventually

slithering
into
pale fogginess.

years recycle years

grinding down
shellshocked lives

more
raw
fodder for the beast.

but not hope

because
hope persists

mercilessly
jabbing

at
the
core

hope twists knives

a
teasing
constant
ache

hope

the very ache
that
assures me

that

i

am

alive
