Torn by Nicole Surginer

Sporadic flashes of love and fury
churn charcoal through blood teared cloud.
I tread heavily the sands of madness,
laden in weight of a heavy heart
shackled to a fleeting soul.
I am singed in ash of your remnants,
pelting mercilessly from a dragon fire sky.
Jilted earth tears away
the seams of her missing half,
swallowing whole my shallowed breath,
spilling forth your ghost from tattered veins.
Starved blood stings colder than death.
