Tag: recycled



Without warning
The chilly wind of rejection
Sweeping away a lifetime 
Of laughter and love

Fragments of a life blown apart
Jagged and sharp
scraping and scratching
at unhealed wounds
Still leaving their bloody trails

Redacted, reused and then recycled
Shelf life expired 
Dispensed without further regard
Callously and cruelly
cast away

Darkness would come soon
The relief of blackness
Veiling a pain-stricken face
Not wanting to remember
The ghosts from a past best forgotten
