Welcome to Wordy Wednesday, where I post a bit of my writing for you all to read! You guys voted in last week's poll for some poetry, so here are a couple of poems I've not posted on here before. Enjoy! I'll see y'all again on Saturday for the Behind the Scenes blog tag.
*The second poem contains moderately graphic images*
Lost in Remembrance
As daylight fades from every crack between
the bars that lock me here behind this wall,
I close my eyes to sights so cold, so mean
and reach instead for one for whom I’d fall.
There’s nothing left inside the once so keen
remembrance that I wanted ne’er to pall,
for years have passed since you were there and seen,
time longer than the means I’ve to recall.
But when I reach inside the nighttime vault,
my dreams connect me back to that first glance.
I reach towards you with my empty hands,
still knowing that with me lies all the fault,
and with a final breath I send to you
the love you’ll never know was always true.

Sometimes I think I might never stop.
I might pull at myself with sharp, curling fingers
until the cartilage in my nose shows,
my jaw hanging open, sinew and bone,
until my mammary glands ooze with open, festering fat.
Then I will rip it open still more, shatter my ribs and
pull my heart out. I will throw it into the air, let it hang there,
and say, “Tell me, please, what it is you see.
Look at this beacon of bloody heart, shining like sun,
this thing from inside me, and when you are done,
tell me. Because I’m not sure I understand
who I am.”
