#103 (skeletal smile)

photo credit: Matthias Geh

ghost fists

punched a hole

into my stomach

filling up with grief

an unknown pond of sadness

greets me every day

with a skeletal smile


the image of your face

wrinkly and tanned

like a wriggling fish

it escapes my mind’s grip

and I’m lost in spiraling



for a wavebreaker

to face the hurt

rolling in like the tides

each wave accumulated

another painful fragment

of happy seconds

floating like paperboats

until my eyes have dried out


*3rd January 2017
