Sacred Words

One never hungers

At the altar

Of the written word

Words and thoughts

Pray for release

And started being me
I hung the old with the new
And began to believe

The ropes we climb
The balance we make… 174 more words

As I taste the dark
And embrace my pain

Look me in the eye
Feel my pulse beneath… 23 more words

The numb stale in my mind
I’d hold my breath
But there is nothing left for me

Take the blade to my heart… 15 more words

The truth that I know to date
Accented pain, endless blame
A tattoo of burdened hate

Misguided thoughts, unspoken prayers… 71 more words

I watched the smoke
Coat the sky with black
I held my breath
For a second chance
Yet was handed a weight… 96 more words
