NaPoWriMo Day 15: Apology Unheard

NaPoWriMo Day 15: Apology Unheard

Medusa coils at her own reflection,

for even her heart turned to stone.

Infinitesimal frantic thoughts in perpetual conflict,

can it be said that a civil war has friendly fire? 

Unravelling neurotic notions

is like free-falling

whilst wearing the emperor’s new parachute. 

When reality is a Rubik’s cube in the hands of a tetraplegic – 

all else remains unsolved. 

Yet should Jekyll apologise for the actions of Hyde? 

For even an avatar that’s fraught yet shared

may choose to console as it repairs.
