Splinter My Sides - Poem by Neil Solan

Red, red wine
Splintered my sides
Some years ago.
When hope was beautiful / possible.
When my trees of potential were so fruitful.
Before I felt the stone-cold hand
Of reality
Tap me on the shoulder.
There is no sweet solution.

Explosions of comforting words
Do little to extract this pain
When they fall upon deaf ears.
