"What sad memories can do..."

Slash the open heart...

Slash . . .Slash!
The open heart.
Fill darkened,
Spaces . . . Smart,

Loosen cords,
Of emptiness.
Raise flags,
Of restlessness,

Smiles that fade,
Into the deep,
Attract grim imagery.

Wail into,
The shallow sleep,
Slumber; restless tragedy.

Once the hand,
That life clung onto.
Once the loss,
The grip was lost.
Once the back,
Turned on the lamb.
Once the slaughter,
Yet released.

. . .Slash, and Slash,
Yet, once again . . .
. . .Slash; the echo of the pain.
