Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than hands?

-Ernest Gaines.


As you sink to the floor in tears
And the walls swallow you whole
Reach out and pull
Because your heart is gone.

The flowers in your garden
Once full to bursting with life
Begin to turn brown
And the petals fall away.

Your blood seeps through the cracks
Leaving pools of black and red
Which begin to soak into the wood
And stain the floor.

I hold your broken body
With shaking arms
Looking at the ebony swirls
Left across you face and hands.

Knowing you are no longer home...

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
