memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

A spark to move my heart

A spark to move my heart

Catches fire

Incandescent flames burning

Flames of red liquid

Pumping central vermillion

Bloody, bold and resolute

Nerves jingling and jangling

My arrhythmic heart

Misses a beat

Galloping pulse

Stiffens, jerks and collapses.

Attack, fatal to my life’s beating core,

Is my undoing and the hard floor

Rises up to greet me with it’s

Cold unyielding embrace.
