Scarred . . .

For Poets United's Midnight Snack

Autumn wraps around me,
like a cloak.

Spent leaves,
falling.

Shards of stained glass,
swirling.

Firebrand fingers touch
the ground.

Long shadows, stark and blatant,
trace your steps.

Words fall from your lips,
like bombs.

Detonating on impact
with my heart.

I really like how you bring autumn and the impending winter into play with love's hurt! It goes beautifully with the image too!
