Skin to Bone

Skin to bone
peeling back
the unknown,
frail fragments
falling into black
dissolving into dust
for a life must
peel the burn away
shredding the decay
of life never living.

I am not satisfied with this poem and I am sure that will be either be added to or completely re-written. Let me know your thoughts


  1. oo nice....yes...decay leads to further life....i think it is vividthe last 4 lines are my fav...never living, i may work the wording a bit different in that...

  2. i like the layers here...the peeling back...making life visible--and feel-able

  3. I agree Brian, that was the part I didn't care that much for. Thanks for the feedback
