Photo Challenge #18 “Strings Attached”

Kiyo Murakami

I wanted then to be

Tongue-less, finger-less

That I could not speak

That you’d be left

With only my eyes

For company

And my smile swinging

Off the hinges

Like a thrown door

 

I don’t have youth

As an excuse anymore

The freedom to fail

Without collateral

The luxury of spare parts

Now I wait behind mirrors

Collecting reservations

Wondering if today

I’ll unravel entirely
