Viewed, The Obscure

The ghost of a blade

slices arteries deep;

whispering words can

scream heart-songs to sleep;

invisible flames

scorch as well as a blaze;

impalpable fog

can extinguish sun’s rays.

Delicate, yes.

Weak, no –

veins that bleed

for the world to see

hold volumes, streams,

encompass galaxies

and implode with atoms,

redefine strength

by tracing survival

by heart

in colours too true

to be seen

unless by naked eyes.
