'Le Masterpiece

May 28, 2008
By Margarete` Ferrier, Havelock, NC

Another failed attempt
Broken hearts of a world azure and gray
Crumbling parts of her canvas
Disintegrating before her blue-green eyes
Everyone she’s ever loved
Fade away like flowing tears
Going round in circles in her misery
Hoping no one will notice
Insane attempts
Just like so long ago
Kills her from the inside out
Now broken and
Open on the floor
Pieces scattered everywhere
Quiet is her despair
Running colors
Slither down the canvas in piercing cries
Today is spiraling to
Utter night
Vague kisses drizzle down in amber
Warm embraces in bright yellow futile grasp
X-pectant emotions aren’t shown
Zero love is manifest
