Through the Black Window

Imagination thick with guilt and cut glass on the window sill just to ward off breaker’s in or those who are no longer friends Painted window blackened ink as dark as fallen ship wrecks sink into the void of sound and sight the ocean’s gulping, heaving bite Solid me through thick and thin I bolt my heart to my spine within and cut off contact with the rest less fall into the viper’s nest Hole me up in my blind room Tell me that you’ll be here soon Feed me your uncertainty before you snap your fingers free Sight dissolved from want of heart never wished to be apart scrape the paint from off my pain as I’m a long way from insane.
