Mutterseelinallein

by Shannon Nara

 

When the inside fills

with scarlet

and the outside drowns

in ink

 

The broad smile

slips from the face

atop broad shoulders

 

When the brightest

is covered in gloom

and the twinkling

fails to shine

 

The lighted windows

have shades drawn

darkening the house

 

When the wall hits

with a fierce blow

and breath struggled

to fill lungs

 

Days dissolved into

wilted, hazy nights

a collapsed frame
