pearls

break through

Posted in quatorzain by maggie on 2007/06/21

remember finding out about the clock?
how if you watched it long enough it stopped
and let you die for just that moment's break?
experience is background to be dropped
while dreams are episodes you try to block.

remember how you learned to hold it still,
that storm inside your head they couldn't tame?
remember what it took to touch your ache?
remember war? remember who's to blame?
if one can't fault herself then who else will.

it's not as though you're broken by mistake
- there's no such things as accidents like that
nor curses so expedient to fake.
remember, then you'll know where she's been at
(break through, your darkness starts when you awake)
