Accelerant Tears

She cries over broken rearview things, sideway decisions that can never be back pedal changed Sad memories be gastric fumes of the last emotional wrong turn Past petrol vapors igniting present date swerve heartburn Pulse accelerant tears kindle sorrowful thoughts: Remembrance of broken bosom pain Wet pillow skid years, trapped temporally aught behind the wheel of misfortune flame She tries to get over the unsafe bridge of sighs; but blurred vision won’t let the past hurt go, it clearly never dies Gasp recollection of accidental words, fatal fumes of the last argumentive wrong turn Regret fueled vapors sparks a future spinster fate swerve heartburn Accelerant tears pulsating ask the tint rearview mirror, who’s at fault? Speed dial relationship got single digital shattered, very hastily Wet hanky fears make the crossroad choice less clearer, all for naught Old flames of guilt melt merging desire, now running on empty

Well, she can always be 'Queen of (Her Own) Aunt-Hill!' Maybe she can find some other 'spin-stirs' and get a 'thang' going. Peace and Hope, Gershon
