A space is opening in me
a canyon bowel of absent
feelings, void of defeat
exhausted open pit mined out
happiness of ore destroyed
in emotional bludgeoning
carried out mechanically
for a monetary price, never
realizing real value, leaving
only a deep hole, dark bottomed
abandoned in despair, wondering
where the years went, wounds
left poorly filled, danger to wanderer’s
fall who cross the barb wire fences
broken by cattle or neglect.
