Trigger Warning

Sweetness ahead
rough edges of the past
following at a fast clip
rapid and ruthless

Stealing a dream
holding it just above
folding it every way
soft and floral

Aroma of the past
electric, crackling joy
cautiously innocent
her failure breathes

Sanguine songs
captures the lifeblood
into one complete
resolute event

Consequences alive
fresh as they were
yesterday’s blooms
dead and alive

For mercy I plead
for anything but nothing
dash of sun under
the waterbed

Scraping away
like sand in the ocean
chiseling your light
into our world
