Pieces of personalities; soul
Fractured into base components:
The social butterfly,
The lover the son the friend; pretend.
Helium filled aspects or attributes
Slowly drifting into a lilac sky like balloons
In the shape of my skin –
Naked flesh left behind, it lays
Selfish and selflessly flayed;
Incomplete vessel digging claws
Into the pure white sand
Of an island adrift in time.
Drifting endlessly through now,
Tethered and released by parts abandoned –
Anchoring themselves to the violet horizon;
Always at the edge of existence,
Always beyond the grasp
Of skeletal fingers
Lacking the will to try.
Bask in the glory; the end of a story
Telling tales of connections left to drift
Shaded by the lingering remains
Of selves released to freedom.
