hush

thCA32H02H

He would trace the jagged map of cracks
smeared plaster wall aside his bed,
his ashen memory of their life imagined
‘How, how did it ever come to this?’

The signs were there trust and naive heart
believing every little late night lie,
the bills a bed and their sick calico Jane
‘Reasons? I don’t owe you anything!’

Now his grieving heart blindly traces cracks
blinds drawn closed on the summer day,
the life imagined all his dreams gone hush
‘How, how did it ever come to this?’

    what prophetic words…beebeesworld

    • when i first sat down to piece, it was not at all what ended up on my screen. i let go and let the words just write themselves. i guess my secret subconcious is working a little overtime. šŸ™‚

      thank you.
