Penned

Penned

She penned
Her verse
Eye opening
Slightly terse…
“This envelope sealed
Comforting
Congealed
I long for you to
Open
Melt this glue
Cleanse warm sudsy
Soap-in
Rip tear
Demolish these
Folds
Undo this fabric
Open and
Free me
Remove these
White washed
Clothes”

If I were?

If I were

If I were
A stray?
Would you
Take me in
Lost?
would you
Find me
Someone else?
Would you
Respond this way
Not me?
Would you
Take me back
To return?
Would I be allowed
To repair myself?
Would you
Be able to remember
What we were
Before?

Sparrow

Sparrow

Narrow the trail
Lost to the eye
Other widely paved
Fertile drawn nigh
Hidden secrets unknown
Naught exit bemoan
Strength not built
From the simplest of trial
This heart treads narrow
Tempestuous aisle
Wandering with purpose
Paths fraught in peril
Hope unending
in flight as the sparrow
