Shock and Shame

Your heartbeat skips

a gap                            in time

with the shock

electric                       jolt

of realisation

blurs your vision

fades in

and then                   cuts

to shame

as it

trickles

down

the

window

pane

crystalline

and

slow

and

spatters

your soul
