Words across the Oceans

image

Dreams Don’t Have to Wait

Pallid existence down overgrown paths

Forgotten landscapes crazed with cracks

Tapestries rolled and curtains drawn

Crammed into corners she didn’t belong

Debauched revolution of the clocks

Wasted seconds and moments lost

Another mistake, another regret

Crushing boulders upon her chest

Passion entombed in waking grief

A thousand secrets tucked underneath

Eyes downcast, biting back fear

Masked refinement blotting tears

Stormy light and moony pace

Working the wings in silent grace

Wavering shadows muting her pleas

Confiscated treasures hung from trees

Moss-coated memories eroding her soul

Pocketed timepieces taking their toll

Till history and destiny converged at her feet

Forging a plot twist from stroke and heat

Tasting his breath, feeling his rise

Peeling back her fraught disguise

Vocal chords stretching raw

His throaty syllables trailing scars

Evocative words in tangled wind

The pendulum swing between virtue and sin

Cutting her deep with razor blade prose
