Fractured Puzzle

Fractured puzzle in a splintered box,
with broken strings and scorched rocks.
The painted horse without a rider.
The peering cracks grow wider.

You left me to wander the spider attic,
pull at webs covering closed doors frantic.
The rusted heart clock ticks endless time.
Warped mirror repeats in surrendered sign.

Fractured puzzle in the dust of evening shade,
Crystal shards, colored in your illusion, fade.
The rag doll cries into the checkered cloth.
Doll house curtains feed the hovering moth.

You went on clouds, your silvery steed.
I watched through streaked windows of need.
Black rafters hung a hangman's noose.
Nightmares to visit in purpling abuse.

Fractured puzzle in frayed pieces regard
the flesh of torment scarred to ward
away the roses, grown fresh of thorn.
The kiss of pleasure rent and worn.

Starlight bends to rays left to death.
Music plays harmonies sad and bereft.
The taste of forever behind earth walls.
Knowledge of the listless carrion calls.

Fractured puzzle in a fragment pool.
The tortured embers hiss the fool.
Love's breath stale with aged neglect,
fortune swings a broken neck.

Your voice torments the writhing soul,
moments of firelight over, over told.
Your beauty speaks inside to haunt me.
The wraith of ages shows not one mercy.

Fractured puzzle, scatterings in dusk,
colored paper peelings mocking my trust.
The rain's breath smells of the ever when
these dismal eternities pose to me, then.
