sidestepping shrapnelled

shards of jagged life


cauterising

wounds

deeply veiled

fleeing from salivating strife



sewing a tattered soul

        fragmented

        mishmashed

        

        into

        a

        rainbow

        mosaic

             

        haphazard

             

a patchwork of forgotten lies spoken


a wellspring of

dreams broken



flung to the winds

cast away




the wanderer …


committing the crime


around

every bend


attemped rhyme

to inure time



mile

upon endless

mile


prepped

to bury pain


on cue

to mask loss


anaesthetised

sterilised


prepped

on cue


mile

after

mile


to paint on

the wanderers smile …
