JERKS OF HEARTBREAK

There are clawed fingers
Which scratches the core of the heart of loving souls
Plucking out happiness and planting sadness
Leaving the future bleak and eyes red

II
They come in their horrid varieties
Slow or aggressive
And take over the senses in helpless lenses
Take over muscles in fearful pulls
Take over shame with spittle so lame
Forcing teeth to bite their bosom friend; tongue
Contorting bodies until their arrests end
To the shame of the innocent model

III
Not contagious they say
But burns out friendships like fires in dry hay
Able to be handled
But squeezes out young brains like water in a towel
Not a spirit
But harms hearts like the harmattan’s touch on fertile trees
Those blessed not to have witnessed might comfortably chuckle but
Dear epilepsy, you are one of death’s most vile agent

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
