Discord breeds bitterness

Resentment grows like

Black mold hidden in dark corners

Putrid, contaminated, fractured remnants

Of that which was once



Silent accusations bounce off collapsing dreams

Walls of defense grow like

Kudzu vines claiming the landscape

Austere, apathetic, caustic acknowledgement

Of that which is now



Common ground laid in ruin

Divergent paths beckon

Lest the acrimony consume all

In a burst of exquisite flames

The quiet that is







Michele Vecchitto
