out of this world


Miniscule Diary


I see the ghouls in his soul,
The bits of man-made hurt
that emassed into defiant haunting ghosts.
No, he didn’t become like that in a day;
It started with one touch…
just one light brush,
almost un-feeling–
a promise made, a promise failed.
A piece of him gave.
But that was not all–
just the beginning of the end.
For it happened again,
and again,
and again.
They promised, they swore,
they bet ‘pon graves,
and yet again, they failed.
So that was how it was,
that they broke his soul to crumbs.
No one ever kept their word,
until he could give no more.
And now, I see him clearly…
through his brimming eyes that
host shards of ache and malady.
He was not always like this.
His demons are man-made.

  2. Wow! These beautiful lines hold and carry a pretty insidious plot that evolved overtime! Deeply saddening and poignant they are…soul-dipping, soul-ripping, most definitely ‘soul-rippling’! 😁😄

    Pains can either hurt or totally change us! Nothing happens in a vacuum; we’re basically a product of our experiences! Coming back from some kinda hurts can tend to be an impossibility almost; but some folks are able to rise above and get past ’em!

    More than ‘reblog-worthy’, I’d say! Thanks a lot for sharing Amity and more ‘brain-power’ to she who conceived it….ME! 😃
