Broken Pieces 

We can see them all around us
...........................look .................................

shattered scatterings like
dead winter leaves blowing and breaking                        crushed                        burning

We can smell them and see them in pieces and 
singed hair

scalding over blisters healed

unfolding every day
all around us

bullets to the head as they say                                                            They say a lot of things
don't they ............ 
                                                                        and then there is silence

in the screaming.

Such a darkness to this piece. Yet so relatable for now...Bullets to the heads....People take bullets to their heads as calmly as we would take a hat to our heads! No patience, no endurance, no fortitude. They say a lot and then there is silence. Their screams drown unheard. The shattered casing of their heads, their 15 minutes of fame. A Poem from you after so long, dear E and certainly one to remember and return for re-reads. Loved it and the lovely artwork too! ❤🙋‍♀️❤

The formatting works well with the darkness of the theme.

Ah the image you paint here. Dark, and broken. The last line is so powerful to me, “and then there is silence in the screaming”.
You write it like flashes of images once seen and never recovered from.
It is real and therein lies the beauty!

This piece has such strong emotion..Some screams are so silent that it becomes deadly.. And some screams of pain are so loud that when we fail to acknowledge them they give up.. They become the invisible bugs we feel crawling on our skin, and when we finally look.. there gone..

As i read your words and listened to the music the words became all powerful in making me fill up with images of horror and destruction from man's inhumanity to fellow men.

Certainly a brutal rendering of some proportions. I don't know that we can see this sort of thing all around us. I prefer to think like Jewel Kilcher that, "Maybe if we are surrounded in beauty someday we will become what we see" but if our light has become darkness, how deep then is that darkness? Maybe we see what we want to see. But maybe that's why I don't watch the evening news anymore.

I like the line, "and then there is silence in the screaming."
More often then not, there is screaming in the silence.

They are our head. Some heads talking. Some heads silent. Some scream for all the reasons there are to scream. Even if we hide under a rock we still smell them. Stinky screams. If this was mostly spontaneous, that still leaves room for intention. If your intention was to create spontaneous thought it worked on me.
