Sharp slivers left behind..

Drops of blood ripple


 the waters of the dieing.


 An open wound..


Deep but not seen..


Wooden spears in the echoes


of this beating heart..


As hopelessness shatters dreams..


Ever so slowly drowning


in the bottomless black


of humanities blood filled ravine...


The heart always beating...


Yes, always bleeding..


Yet never....
                  Never seen.

I am not so sure this is dark as it is undeniably true...and sad.
This is a grand illustration of unseen and or ignored injury....whether on a personal level or world level. Well done, my friend.

Isn't it so, as the splinter that hides beneath the skin giving one pain and yet so small that one cannot see it, only feel it's presence....your thoughts just like the heart that beats and bleeds from broken dreams and the hopelessness of life....

really nice work....

enjoyed.....Art Sun...

Erica,

Some splinters run deeper than what healing will allow. Excellent writting.
