Severed

These words I know as if they’ve dissolved into me

ink injected into my bloodstream

so that when I sever an artery

the walls become a diary of sorts

A storybook happy ending for all involved

And but oh what is the meaning

of this gruesome scene of horror?

This open-door-where-has-the-killer-gone-

however-will-we-solve-this-mystery

saga told using a thousand words

that all mean the same thing

Close the book and leave it here with me

so that I can soak in its many secrets

and use them to add another page to the diary

This one came out a little different than usual. Kind of a weird one for me, would love to know what you think!

    Great stuff. You are always surprising me my friend, I love the lines above, and find the poem to be quite beautiful and intriguing.

    Have a blessed Monday my friend. Love to you and all your loved ones. ❤️💕🌸 Joni
