out of the ashes of midnite

out of the ashes of midnite

                 she staggers

                         a new grief burning into palms

                                  raised to a dark heaven

                                       or a patient hell     mark me


                                                             raise these boulders from already- weakened flesh

                                                                                 as firestorms of fresh tears

                                                                                                   cascade over jagged stone

                                                                 mea culpa


About lindalou5150

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
