Lighten my darkness

Sunlight peeks through the shroud.

Blossoms glimpsed, suspended in the cold,

The briefest of feasts for my weary eyes.


Tighten my resolve

The easy road is calling

Sirens draped in dirt encrusted silk

Empty promises of sweet affection.


Frighten me awake.

Rain, snow, and sleet, hard and fast

A shock of salt and cold quicken my blood.

Flee apathy and all its warmth.


Brighten this valley.

Sparrow songs filter down from the crags

Crusts of bread tasted as I shiver.

Love broken daily for my tired soul.
