Brokenhearted - NaPoWriMon 2017!


When did this happen?
My angel only has one wing.
He’s been landloping
around soft corners as gently
as possible, he’s injured.

Guardian, take me
somewhere safe.
No wonder I’ve clouded
the mirror so many times
with my tears. Take me,
or let us be divergent together.

Believe me, longing
for a new tomorrow
is so cruel. And the land
of shadows is much
more spacious.
