20 years adorned

promises broken
tendons torn
love locked in layers
of pretence
20 years preserved
love locked in preservation
20 years adorned
to this fractured heart
disposable to many
indisputably yours.

nk 11/6/17


tender beats of shadows
of my past
of hearts distant to my touch
presence is of the ether
of a world unknown to this sun
i sing your name to the stars
i see your warmth in the 
i lay desolate of this reality
