Outcast Grow Into New Bodies Reality - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

our past love becomes a stranger
memory stranger is a stark wall danger
estranged coupled becomes loner

loved turned devastation
labyrinth old personality
is bound tied inextricably

into another couple life
lost in sudden alone isolation
colours bright bleed draining

with each lead step forsaken
beauty eternal is liquid paint
swift plied upon easal canvas

in a moment fleeting
captured immortalised
in the master artist's

hand beauty is painfully
denied to flesh mind
our shattered fleet lives

herein lies hope
we shed past skins
grow into new bodies reality
