The Last Hope

A forest fire rages from the cackling laugh of embers So hot that even aluminum shrinks into flattened bark Ashes litter the ground, soot in the air And the smell of life caught in a chaos Sickening and fading Echoes unheard through the roaring of the flames Screaming to save […]

Lover’s Lament

It breaks my heart, again To see us reassemble the pieces Only to find that This isn’t working out  What was it I saw in your eyes If they were not yours When your voice went shrill Or weak with fatigue How I wanted to hold you Carry you to […]
