Broken Shards

Barbs land true in the night
fired behind vicious words
wrapped in silken bed linens

Cool tufted comforter caresses
bodies fueled by hurt and anger
spew poison darts meant to injure

Thorns imbed deep burrowing
past thick skinned barriers
beyond years built steel walls

Monsters hidden emerge
obscured by the face of one
once loved beyond all measure

Ties are pulled apart and broken
bonds unravel the ends burned
beyond a braiders healing abilities

Backs turn in anger
neither relinquishing the last word
the line is drawn and quartered
