Shattering in Slow Motion

By Adam J. Pearson

Broken window pane
Shattering in slow motion–
Cracks snaking along
A splintering surface.

Losing it again
Shattering in slow motion–
Cracks scratching along
A rupturing surface.

Fragile self-esteem
Shattering in slow motion–
Cracks snaking along
A splintering surface.

Hiding now, unseen
Shattering in slow motion–
Cracks racing along
A rupturing surface.

Thin glass confidence
Shattering in slow motion–
Cracks snaking along
A faltering surface.

Crashing ambulance
Shattering in slow motion–
Flames burning along
A smouldering surface.
