    Written To Death

    My love

    hurts.

    Its pangs
    written by fingers
    quilled to sharp points,
    recklessly dipped,
    into the soft spaces
    of a wounded heart.

    Pressed mercilessly,
    memories traced in vain.
    Splattered heedlessly,
    with no regard to shame.

    Blank paper
    wraps itself around four chambered walls
    and is delivered.

    And yet these fingers continue to stab.
    Until the inkwell dries,
    shrivels and dies.
    My hands evidence,
    of my heart's own massacre,
    covered in blood.
