In silent kisses–
Assurance waits sleepily,
Admonishing the scent of reasons,
Quick to flavor the confidence, waning…
A tender heart, lost to doubt.
Smiting frailty in challenged tones,
Blighting his fields of tall, thin grasses.
Anew, the sounds of silent hate.
Bastion of truth, razed in flame.
A dire secret of malevolence.
Arc of truth betrayed.
Solitary, flesh-ripping sadness…
Enduring despite pain.
But the touch that is love,
Silences the screaming–
Bleating, grotesque thoughts
Fading into shadowy recesses,
As the dawn breaks.
