glass

peices of broken glass scattered upon a rocky ground

with pale light glistening upon their serrated exterior

they seemed to mark the jagged edge of the twilight

 

nearby lay a frail form marked by signs of struggle, within those vacant places of his soul

one thought burned, keeping a single flickering light glowing in that void space

a single tear exited the corner of his eye, gently rolling across his face which was situated against his arm

as his mind lay considering all that had brought him to this place

for it seemed as though hope was just some empty place that used to be called home

many years had gone by since his life was torn but their decay had created cavernous spaces within

he stood up and began walking forward beneath the night sky as visions of her glanced within his spirit

reaching out with her delicate touch was a disembodied dream from his past

smiling at him from across the room and running toward him

the thought quickly disipated as he exhaled a cloud of empty feelings into the night sky

"to think that such a thing could be called love" he said, speaking her name quietly as he continued on his walk

another thought of his son calling from across the room, which quickly faded into thoughts in that court room

this was no more, he tried to stop thinking and to just walk but his unclear mind was torn by feelings which only intensified

he finished his walk and went back inside the house, where he was a simply a guest who had no where else to go

maybe this was all a crude joke, and the dream would come to and end

nothing seemed to satisfy the need to be close with someone else, for everyone he knew had deserted him

he walked across the living room and went back to the bedroom and sat quietly upon the bed

laying back upon the matress he cuffed his fingers making fists and flipping through the thoughts within his mind

tears welled up within his eyelids as his nose began to sniffle, he tried to quiet himself so that no one would hear what he was doing

it only seemed to intensify the feeling, then after some time had passed he fell asleep
