Wistful Words. - Poem by Sharlie Goddard

Wistful words
Hang in a frosted air,
Hopeless things uttered
Sharding a trust.


I look at a floor
Of imperfection
And try to make a mosaic of the brilliant colours
But they are blurring and churning and slip like peas in a frying pan.

My eyelids are so thick and heavy
That
I
I
I,
Uselessly I
Scream into an ocean
It hits a tidal wall and echo’s back.
