railroad

Stumbled blocks, mumbled rocks, marking the path with the walk.
Crumbling codes of fire and road, we struggle to know when we’re near.

The tracks just go on without end, my dear.

engulfed

i questioned all i found that night

and wondered away my worry-plight

i hesitate to feel the light

my starving heart desires.

how can i love the fire
if i hate its savage bite?

New beginning

Be with me this journey
Guide my chalky hands
I am so impermanent
Each day I fall again

Do not let me crack the ice
I do not wish to drown
My heart is flooded by your face
Though tears spill ever down

New life, new days
Refresh my tired soul in you
Empty the bones and blood and ash
And help me feel again.
