Day 202 – Unfortunate Compass

1 Comment

As an elusive and reclusive tool,
I would tip-toe through the shadows,
Avoiding droplets of salted tears.
For I’ve seen your inner-most pain,
Channeled and reconstructed into
Just listen:
To to the shattered desires
Liquid of disappointment
To put out our fires
Extinguish our persistence
And laugh if we missed it.
Escape just to risk it.
If forced to remain broken,
I most certainly would.
If this is the highway chosen for me,
Might as well brave it,
And let the course be.
