The details are in diamonds
flowing from your eyes,
zip-stripped fumes from a life exhumed
to the depths of its apple seed soul.

Barriers peel back in pleats
and bleating lambs go to school.
Suspended serpents swing from trees
then hiss to secure your dis ease.

Burning through layers of living
powerful waterfalls force
glistening diamonds through your eyes
that slowly de-story your lies.

  1. Great write, Brenda! I especially like barriers being peeled back in pleats! Great image. Strong last stanza for sure, as those lies are de-storied slowly but with the force of water blasting down to the base.
