Time Bomb

The cavernous abyss
I try not to pillage
only because
once touched [it’s broken]
[you could say] explosive
&sudden
&I’m warned against the debris

But where, exactly then
Am I supposed to store all this emotion

In a bottle bobbing in an ocean?
Within the scars of time?

You couldn’t help if you tried
& that’s why I don’t reach out
Everything is not so simple now

(Whenever it “was”, I can only doubt)
