Artery Severed (standard:poetry, 85 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: May 19 2010Views/Reads: 1424/1Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Some shocking events are difficult to describe in mere words...

Artery severed 

From the mother 

Who tore it? 

As none other 

Who ripped it? 


Was it you? Was it me? 

By whose hand and in vain 

Now blood spills 

And in pain 

Silent writhing 

Undue shame 

Just to boil 

Precious contents 

Put each barrel 

Into pockets 

Trading changers 

Live to shock us 

To deny the truth 

And block us 

Where to go? 

What to do? 

Must we wreck our mother too? 

The only one we ever knew 

They swear to love 

But only slew
