the wanderers smile …




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 …
