Wow John!!! Holy Hanna it seems like forever since I've read your work. This has a beautifully broken feel to it. As though although broken hearted not dead, still breathing and trying to thrive. With each new day life gives way to options and choices which can make us stronger if we can see it for just that...a fresh start, clean slate, a way to rise above.
I know I'm rambling now but I Love this. A true slice of life!!!
to these legs
arms, and this heart
That, for me, clenched the heart strings...brilliant
these empty halls
far too long
only a ghost
of what once was
That is how I've felt coming back here to Elite, sorry nothing to do with the piece but totally summarizes how I feel here now...haunted into submission, taunted by the ghost of my voice.
Back to your write...well done Sir!!! Awesome possum :)
Was so Happy to see your name and even better to read your work!!!
