The Daily Post prompt is: brick
Walls of bricks and brambles climb
into starless nights, tar-thick with storm.
Black waves pound a violet shore,
where pools so deep they swallow light
crackle beneath a film of ice,
and nothing, not the faintest celestial spark,
the deepest thrumming of the earth’s core
reaches into my heart,
shrunken within the rattling cage of ribs,
because you took away the world
when you ravelled up your love.
