Soul to Sole

It started silently
With a bang
My psyche cracked, split, broken
A million fragments – scattering
Falling like glitter
Shards – ground under foot
Cut skin blood, a red caul
Palling under my steps
Sole to soul
As I look on in stunned silence

Stuck
Scared
Blank

Blank look, blank mind, blank heart
No In, No Out, No Me
Just shards. Glitter. Blasted remnants
Of a death
No chance of survival

Silence
Peace
At last
