FINAL PORTRAIT… a poem

Explosion, Glass, Buttons, Exploding

The shards of glass

Show sides of me

I don’t think I was ever meant to see

Memories of loved ones

Gone long ago

Haunt my mind like a salacious foe

Love and hate – empty and full

Reflecting the dark-side in this poor soul

two girls standing on seashore

Childhood kindness

Like holding hands

Whispering secrets

And making plans

Close-Up Photo of Woman Lying on Bed

Making love for the first time

Reflecting through tears

Lost in a world

That thrives on our fears

These are the final portraits I see

As life’s vital essence spills from me

Car Accident, Broken Glass, Splatter
