2020-10-09 – My Candle to Your Fires

with inner compass
little more
than

shattered
parts..

pieced back together
terracotta that
never quite
holds its
glue,

i can’t tell which
cracks are
you,

maybe beauty’s
in the fall
apart,

and one day,
i’ll be little more
than bones
heaped

before
you,

sure, one day i’ll
be pretty
too..

++++

but i can’t hold a
candle to the
fires in
you.
