Opaque World

The suture on my broken heart is torn, beyond repair. Not even the veneer of your love or kindness can bind it now. Crimson crystal drops drip, as I labour to liberate my heart from this opaque world... where no one sees me. 10.27.2020 Excerpt from "Free my heart" For Greg Barden's "Liberum Divisa 2" contest
