Glittering like diamonds
Edges that slice with precision.
Just the right angle and
Faceted brilliance radiates.
Like strung rubies, silky smooth
A red so deep and lustrous.
No pain, just pulsing relief
Then, a little red circle appears.
Hedging bets that benevolent strangers will reason me away † †
from a ledge
on which I was teetering.
Pathos and conversation
To startle muddled thoughts.
Did i write poetry? Prose? Prayer?
Just shards of a shattered dream
With no real meaning.
