editing innocence

editing innocence

A heart stops beating
nothing
nothing moves
the ceaseless flow
has stilled
a thriving pulse
thins
slows
flows in background violence.

Remains
all the remains
missing pieces
this my frozen gaze
cast in one sure moment.

A breath stops breathing
barren
hollow shell
fallow and misplaced
deserted
inured, numb,
cut
splice

  1. Innocence is a beautiful thing
    makes us see things different
    sometimes even a lot more
    that what things really meant
    let’s try to keep our innocence
    to be pure in heart and mind
    in today’s world is one in kind
    I wish for this to be different
    but I keep an attitude of content.
