The Season of Breakdown

At first appearance

fear! strikes my soul

a closer look at

my wounded life

wrings salty tears

out of

my pillow case


of sorrow

the weeping



all my pains

and backward contemplations

around the gilded knife

of life’s thrusting complications

peeling off the layers

of dried out withered dreams

waking centuries of sweetness

beguiling and free!
