A line of light

Creeping down my wall

And where it ends

There’s a crack along the floor


Through these lines

I can hear them down the hall

Muffled voices

Screaming in my skull


So even now

When I lay my head to sleep

I can see them

I can hear them in my dreams


This white noise

This reoccuring theme

The subtle voice

Of childhood memories

She is a cherry tree

Full in ageless blossom

A gift to offer your own device in every branch of lissome


Fruits smooth and supple

Let her yield tempt

Least it take of you, so should you take of the flesh


She is a falling flower

Stricken from her perch

With which the wind made no promise of fame in turn of curse


Her perfume is robust

It lies on every breath

And weighs its siren anchors across already heavy breast
