Seared

Bound by chains of guilt
In permanence of self
State of being
A state of mind
Distorting
Encrypted with illusion
Desperation, devastation
Controlling a crippled movement
Screams within soul
From anguish to anger
Making a spider shattered vase
Start expanding beyond whole

As time tears takeover
Leaking through
Cracks and caverns
Of a once solid vessel
Now unable to hold

So I am here
Between now and forever
Perspiration from today’s toils
Left a salt licked line
In lacerations of time
Wounds left raw
Untreated to scar
Stretching to heal
Makes the pain set real

Sunset made golden
Reality surreal
As thunder calls her
Out on the hills
A rumbling whisper
Of sirens awaken
Resistance beyond this will

There is yet hope
As the storm rolls in
Promising deliverance
If willing to give
Raindrops are forming
Bringing steady rythum
Stand in skin clothes
Absorbing

The wet, the dripping
Caresses and lures
Trickle off hair tips
Down past lips
Waterfall off neck
Into plato of shoulders
Meander the valleys
through mountains
And plains
Snake trace down back
Pool lakes on belly
For an instants before
Rushing to hips
Follow cut of buttocks
To Trickle down thighs
Finish at toes
Sink deep in the mud

Unable to stand
Unable to run
Cupped by hands
Fingers spread
Trying to catch
All the shards falling
Exposing the centre
Still cupped hands are holding
Grasping and grappling
The soft flesh moulding, melting, escaping

Acid rain is burning
Healing begin
Quarter the flesh
Melt the shell back into one

But the anger still burning
Just Volcano in dormant
Rain just a means
To try and control it
