Unsettled by Nicole Surginer

Surety has died in war
of mind and heart .
Peace has fled the sword.
A sickened season of sixes
clouds clarity, starving possibility.
Yesterday swallowed up tomorrow
and the moon denies her face,
angered of straying stars crashing
into unscripted existences,
shifting fates in stellar orbits.
My eyes fade worthless.
I stumble clumsied through void,
my heart tripping over my soul
and I’ve long since forgotten the
feel of ground beneath my feet
and how to truly breathe.

Nicole Surginer is a poet from the small town of Bastrop,Texas.
