Losing Battle

a dart of the eyes,

minor rebellion of
dubious emotion –

ignore it,
turn away.

quell staccato heart,
latch it in a room
like a petulant child
due it’s punishment.

it is not time
to explore these ruins,
to watch as another scar
fuses itself to heart,
to feel as the heat billows
from below.

fight to deny –
feel pulse
break
the metallic casing
to expose fragile
flesh.

Home

 

The fresh earth of the field

returns his serenity –

to work the soil, broken at

his feet,

a flame to his

frozen thoughts,

a salve to

anguished heart.

 

Born to this land,

restored by circumstance;

a plowed row

startles

memory that

shocks his

permeable soul –

tears irrigate a

new life.
