Wounded love with a twist of Halloween


A skeleton escapes

the quagmire of extinction

dodges a haze of emotion

swims murky perceptions

He shakes cobwebbed memories

from his hollow heart

accidentally drops numb

shuns an edge of charm

Echoed words, blurred visions

haunt him in turn

Elation battles sorrow

as wounded love returns

He sidesteps dreams

crawl s into the casket

breaks the connection

not ready yet

The problem with remembering

how it feels to be alive

is regret always returns

the moment he opens his eyes


Sandy Knauer 10/05
