blank dismissal

i have burned
bridges
that spanned chasms
between hearts
salted the earth
in the memory
of agonies
shared

the ugly truth is
always feeling lost
left love
stagnant
in the mire
filled with
the bloated corpses
of feral adoration

written odes
to dead lovers
whose last breath
carried
blackened petals
that attached
rusted anchors
to my sighs

the fear remains
the only tales
i know how to pen
end in tragedy
as if the cloying
heart of a fool
is nothing more
than a magnet for sorrow

i can tie a noose
with both hemispheres
of my brain
wrapped tightly
around the spectre
of her smile
blindfolded
in blank dismissal
