Poetry Wednesday: Victim

The Tears of Spring CoverVictim

Finger and thorn the grace
Left stuck to exposed ribs
Shivering cold waiting for
The flood to come again
Pray so dearly but
Only paying for sins
Never encountered upon
This personality

Hold no control over
What others do but
Always carry the blame
Shred again into a new
Creation a person unforeseen
In order to thrive

The phoenix that always
Falters back into fathomless
Pasts and the victim’s lament
Beauty victim ceased upon sex
Explosion of cold fury festered
And nursed beneath skin of
Parchment blood stained

Never to have peace within
Hate always swirling and
Spew as ash from
Inked lips by oceans
Of putrid places
Locked in by an undertow
Malice decay

Take the wings and jar
Them in dirt for some
Glimmer of preserved hope
The need for the grace of
Death that has yet to
Flood this away

Poetry Wednesday: Daunted

Daunted

Release thThe Tears of Spring Coverese nightmares
From beneath my piety
Under the impression
Everything touched
Gives way to ash
As if evil is brewing
Below while donning
The cloak of good
So I may not
Bother it while it
Festers deep inside
A perplexed path
That I cannot follow
Only stumble
With bruises and
Scrapped knees
Journey on
Looking for a hope
That has faded
Into the west with
Its graceful companion
Whom I have
Lost and killed
Many times before
