Invisible matters of the mind turned real into the written word.
among lives of others
we decay, mirrored by expectations
as some slight becomes our mask
into some dark caress,
a shiver of time
framed by what might have been
that sucks and tears, feasting on hate,
a monster exposed and born to an unruly heart,
one of personal manufacture.
Uncrippled by such a fate
and true to myself
I become more than someone else's
sixteen line free verse with edit by Kåre Enga, P.O. 22, Blogville
Fractured among the lives of others
We decay so easily mirrored by expectations.
Too often, some slight becomes our mask
Transforming reality into some dark caress,
A shiver of time framed by what might have been
Shucks and tears, feasting on hate.
The monster exposed and born to an unruly heart
Is one of their own manufacture.
Uncrippled by such a fate and true to oneself
We become more than a haunted mistaken identity.
