Splintered Souls! / Poem by Lily Swarn

Poem by Lily Swarn
 
 
Splintered Souls!
 
Often when I see the satin folds of a swishing garment
Clinging seductively on a chiseled frame
Brows plucked to an inquiring perfection
Lips pouting in suggestive bows
Sheen of hair cascading in streams
Feet poised in classic heels
 
The perfection haunts me all night through
For I know the shattered shards of the splintered soul
Gathering its tatters in bundles of threads
Skeins of silk ripped apart
Souls in distress wandering alone
Caged in bodies toned and polished
Facades of gilt, gloss and glow
Enshrouding spirits dead and gone
