The Wound Of A Forced Exit Poem by Frederick Kesner

The Wound Of A Forced Exit

Rating: 2.7


`



Dour faced
you stepped into a gaping precipice
leaving me with
my face moist

at the threshold
(its frame now leaning
to one side
splintered and unhinged.)

Did I tell you that my front door
never opened to the street?
Maybe I never had the need to;
you always entered through the back door,

you always crept out the window
to play in the sun.
This time was different:

Before another word could be spoken
you rushed past me
brushing my outstretched arm(s) .
Then all I could see

was your hair tumbling in the air
as your limbs flailed
while you plummeted out of my life.
