Poetry Tuesday – Death to an Artist

Edges tainted

Of visions long ago painted,

Corners torn

Since have sworn

Should have let release

The desire to live; just rest in peace.

Soft pencil marks erased,

Only to be replaced

By jagged etching of lines

Sprawled all over, left unrefined.

Severed shards of wood

Litter the ground, misunderstood.

Glass shattered,

Blood splattered,

All that remains

Are broken refrains

Of a song left unsung

And a life undone.

Author: Cynthia "Cyndi" Hilston

Cynthia Hilston is a thirty-something-year-old stay at home mom of three young kids, happily married. Writing has always been like another child to her. After twenty years of waltzing in the world of fan fiction, she finally stepped away to do her debut dance with original works of fiction. In her spare time – what spare time? – she devours books, watches Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, pets her orange kitty, looks at the stars, and dreams of what other stories she wishes to tell.  
