All that remains

by TJ Arizona Eagle   Aug 15, 2012

Putrid smell of decomposing passion
Leading to grotesque skeletal remains,
scarred by demoralizing words ,
cleave easily through tender flesh .

Corpse of prevailing existence,
meaningless emotions dwell , miscarried..
Impoverished house of lost enchantment,
liberated of a adherent heart

    I will say, there was appropriate pain. But the core sentiment is resentment, not grief. Observe the vocabulary and the technical alignment. No metaphors depicting bittersweet comparison. There is a certain level of darkness, but mostly anger. Or may be it is me personally, who is engulfed with such vibe.

    Nice to have you back brother.

    very well written.
