These scars u bare etched on your skin
While smiles spread sweet across your face
Soft sighs, clenched fists, eyes red like dawn
love’s vows, now bitter on your lips.
Each broken promise, empty words
Ring in your ears quite deafening
And into darkness breathless screams
As tempest black consumes your voice.
Back bent, weighed down you claw and stretch
Cold fingers, dragging from your mire
Face to the sun, new dawn, new day
Slowly emerging free once more
One thought on “Awake”
Lovely words for such bittersweet sentiments~
