Broken Shelter

Photo by Dana (me)

Innocence feigned in 

restless hands, skimming

the landscape of anonymity 

Seeking a glimmer of dull need


Calloused veins thrum 

Pulse jumping unscathed 

as eyes rake a desolate frame


Splinters of heat unleashed

spears his motive, first blood 

pools and feeds dandelion wishes


Tongue in cheek, skin breaks

Battle wounds plead for kisses

to smother the pain of past failures

They fall entangled, souls bound
