letting go …

scratching
at wounds

picking
scabs

unleashing pain

twisting knives
turning effortlessly

amid the cacophonous romp
of highfives …

letting go
of
scraped souls

eroded
by
dishevelled dignity

stung
wrung
strung

and
hung

to dispel quaint smiles

perfected over a million wounded miles

shattering consciensces
along the way

blinding
blinkering
rose-tinted phantasy
day to grotesque day

clogging vision
hazing eyes

tugging
pulling
tearing
down
curtains

leaving eyes
blinded
blinkered

unseeing
unfeeling …

while broken stems
mend gently

elsewhere

plucked
along strings

strings
strung
and
strummed

igniting
numbed senses

sublime flavours
on clouds of
touch
taste

melding
fusing

myriad dreams
into
dreadlocked hopes

entwined
intertwined

knowing the paths ahead
to be
far from kind

still
setting forth

yet
moving

ever moving
forward onward

hearts ablaze
hopeful

letting go
of it all

leaving it all
far far behind …
