Random Poem:

remember
silentspring

they wrap around her arms
 1
exotic bracelets, delicious denials of life
 2
she tattoed those faded strokes of self pity
 3
those memorials of death
 4
in a foreign tongue
 5
 
 
sweet symphony, play her a melodic tune
 6
coerce the allusive words to return
 7
weave her a veil of deceptive faces
 8
restring her maimed limbs to the marionette
 9
she may not be the prettiest doll,
 10
but she will suffice
 11
 
 
a lovers touch rests unwanted, perhaps,
 12
an embrace of unreturned emotion,
 13
feelings smothered by the sheet of ice
 14
wrapped around her mind
 15
forgotten memories, ideas trapped in a sunlit room
 16
surrounded by a gnarled wall of thorns
 17
each attempt at remembrance
 18
a retribution of shredded skin
 19
 
 
she cannot disrobe
 20
without the reminders of the last year
 21
the crash of her empire, her world
 22
as his gaze turned to another
 23
and she could do nothing, but stand by
 24
cheering him on, while desperately
 25
clawing at the remnents of her heart
 26
notes written by a drunk man
 27
didnt she know the reason for his failure?
 28
dig em deep. bury your heartache
 29
three inches below that malfunction
 30
she makes a mark
 31
 
 
she moves down the pier, along in life
 32
empty reflections in the dark water
 33
when all she wants is a glimpse of a face
 34
a fiery sunset explodes over the calm shore
 35
remember, it whispers, she knowingly ignores
 36
because to remember is to reach into the briars
 37
to remember will only add to the delicate decorations
 38
 
 
memorials of her passion
 39
denials of life
 40
tattoed strokes of empty delusion
 41
she will never be the prettiest doll
 42
nor the lover to endure
 43
just a bearer of exotic bracelets
 44
they wrap around her arm
 45
 
 
reminders of a past she cannot remember
 46
