#104 (thistles around a bruised heart)

thistles

he had grown

around a bruised

heart

thorns

pricking soft flesh

scarlet streams

running wild

trauma

stamping black holes

into grey matter

blissful denial

ends suffering

timeless

looming between sparks

of firing neurons

the ghost of a memory

like a lingering scent

of lost lavender

*4th January 2017
