With a Lessening of Light

I pressed a barb
under my tongue
to remind me

I pierced glass
into my heart 
to awaken a story

as blood dripped
a memory formed
in the pain and suffering
an effigy wavered

then I knew
some stories 
should never be told
and forever remain

locked under my tongue 
speared into my heart
and silent in eternity

    very deep and strong, the wound seems to be gone, but never forgotten. Enjoyed,...p.d.
