Red Sky.


Verity of my sand clad hands
Churned with ego’s lost battle.
The scars that fade away
With scratching winds
Of salt beaten eyes
Of a syrupy heart
Of unanswered grief.

A single fire that melts my
Skeleton of wine stained glass
Made a candle,
Over the wooden plated card box.
Armed with shame
You graced away the admirers
In stealthy silence.

The pigeons clasped forward
In the east trodden sky
Their deaths made a lasting appeal
Then you locked up
The treasury of words
To her
Her remaining days passed on
With the pigeons
Of the red sky
In silence.
