Withdrawn

Withdrawn

A Poem by Threads

A scarlet void expands 

an insult to burn through the summer swings

the world only has so much space 

for nothing 

 

This will never stop; it has a wounded heart for a stomach

and it craves to lash out

as the heart did for comfort(smothered

in forget-me-nots)

 

waves of bitter poured down this throat

looking to save a fish from dry land

gasping for air, choking

 

You cannot bring a rose to a funeral

merely stand witness

in this jury of purgatory

where apathy stands for persecution

and defense

Where speaking only speeds the result

bound to (be) my loss
