The Razor's Edge

a blade of grass
cuts the edges
of a heart's love
so easily betrayed,
so easily forgotten
in the light of another,
another whose light
shines brighter,
whose life seems
so much more than
what it really is,
deceit takes over love,
lost now are the tears
that washed away the pain
of falling down,
your face buried
looking through an earth
that leads to hell,
or does it,
is hell beneath
the blades of grass
or is it here and now?

I guessed the answer
came when a blade of grass
left bloodstain tears
upon the fresh dirt
overturned by the shovel
of a man whose job
consists of burying the past.
One wonders
watching as I lose my strength
to fight the weakness
that overcomes me
if I will be okay
but then one catches me,
catches me in my fall,
holds me close
as I push them away
afraid to feel anything -
afraid to let go of my pain
that belongs to someone else,
her pain,
our sadness we share,
no one could ever share that
not the way we do,
don't you understand
it's not your place,
leave us be
as we face
the depths of hell together
feeling it here,
feeling it there -
wherever that is -
tell me - tell me
there's a quiet place
where blades of grass
don't cut like knives -
tell me there's a place
where there's not a man
who stands silently
with his shovel in hand
to bury the past
where I still live,
lost to all I have,
my memories,
my pain, your pain
- you -

I tumble -
I fall down
upon my sanity,
lost upon a blade,
a blade of grass
cutting the edges
of my heart's love
so easily betrayed,
watching as each day
drifts by
and it seems
what was is wasting away,
forgotten now
in the light of others,
others whose light shines
more brightly only because
deceit carries love
to a safe haven
away from truth -
away from the pain
of losing you.

a very moving piece. tinged of darkness, yet lived through a life of light. as the blades of grass cut deep our soul, yet they can be trampled down as is our lives sometimes. great writing

a most compelling flow of consciousness ...
Reviewed by Art Sun 9/30/2007
Refective piece...this work reads of a comparison, it could be as the grass within pastures of beauty, and it could be as the razor, which cuts and bleeds one into darkness, yet it also reads of a love shattered and broken by the deceit of this same love that incarcerates and or fills one with joy...even love has pain and the green pastures at times can be the bottomless pit we wish to escape...

a nice work...
