Alone
Truly for the first time in years
Mind drifting to memories
Cunningly silenced
Buried beneath tons of guilt
The dead now exhumed to the light
And examined with utmost care
For forensics has shown the slightest carelessness
Destroys

The soul
Carefully padded with down
Lined with satin
Lest the smallest dart
Pierce the surface
Shattering

The Heart
Beating still
Despite the abuse
Bruises healed to normal color
Cuts and slashes now faint scars
Acts of mutilation

Only memories
To be examined with kid gloves
Now that I am
Once again
Alone
