In A Poet's Eye - Poem by Laurence Overmire

is the reflection
the image of a ghost
haunted by life
love-lorn romantic
the heart cut open
the flesh peeled away
in layers
words fall
drifting silently
the sad and bitter tears
of a lost embrace…

(Previously published in Bardo Burner, Jan 2000, no.12)

    Bardo Burner, indeed! You got me there, Laurence!
    And your words fall drifting silently?
