Head, Body, Heart

in timately acquainted with the void

April 3rd, 2018

A lonely head rests on a pillow of jewelweed and hydrangea,

body tangled amidst the sheets twisting like stormclouds

flitting across the dark skies like eyes dart around the room

at blank gray walls as dull as dishwater and begging change

 

A body is cold as dry ice and heavy as lead, suspended in place

paralysed in suffocating stillness and an impenetrable silence

mouth moving but no words coming forth, unable to speak

and unable to move, hands unable to reach the dancing lights

 

A heart beats solemn as a funeral march, powerful as the flap of wings

trying to break out of its bony cage, trying to break its hardened shell

trembling weak and brittle as the walls of the room in a hurricane,

a chrysalis in metamorphosis with a creature yet unknown inside.

 

An accumulation of energy like tiny stars clinging to a form

a head cannot move, a body cannot beat, a heart cannot think

the sum of its parts a monster soon to break free out of need

A being is a big bang about to spit out universes as it falls apart.
