Digging down to the heart of the matter? Otherwise I haven’t a clue… XXXOOO

Small scared boy
in an old man’s body,
worn down too soon

under the weight of his principal sin:

coming into existence at the intersection 

of two lives who should never have intertwined. 

Altering the vectors of their shared destinies,

a descent into chaos and desperation 

and madness and shame

and violence bloody and silently bloodless both.

How can he find release 

and the possibility of renewed life

when that spear is embedded too deep,

threatening to eviscerate him if pulled out

He don’t know
and we don’t know 

and a hundred suns will implode 

under this darkest matter. 

His heart will simply shatter
shutter aflutter one day.
