Styx & Stones
Words do have power to destroy.
Even quietly spoken...
words can obliterate,
words can bewilder.
These words, exploding in my head.
Words that anhilate all sense of "me".
The reasonableness of daily life,
the sense of rightness of things-
gone, gone, gone... in an instant.
You see, I have been undone.
A loose thread pulled by cruel fingers
the very fabric of me,
so laboriously woven by my trembling hands,
now lies in a chaotic heap.
I am condemned by a total sense of contradiction
all of me that has led to this moment,
simply unraveled in an instant by words...
The words of someone who loves me above all others.
