Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

in their blood

12 April 2014

 

 

hear their eyes

smudged silence?

Depression’s in their blood,

answers never asked,

or questioned,

forced into place,

like bricks,

centered,

focused on

building walls.

Do we ever

taste the obvious?

 

 

(written for 1sojournal’s word list prompt)
