kingdoms far removed

Posted to Action Poetry

i have cast a gentle sigh
into that night
far reaching, tender hands
embrace vicious form.
i will wrap the thorns about you,
whistle wind-dreams
to your hair
and count the raindrops
drying slowly
along the sidewalk.

we live our lives
in fortresses cast aside,
head clouded by lines
our hearts confessed on paper.
