Shades of inhumanity

Locked glances

Diving into you

From your eyes

Through your soul

We speak the language of love

And Humanity

 

Our ribs hurt

Over throbbing hearts

They stretch out

Burnt desires

Smouldering coals in fires

Of the brightest red

 

We gather

Memories of lost stars

Lights’ remnants

Pearl pendants

A meek girl turned masterpiece

Of pain and sorrow

 

Love is spent

In pennies for lives

Burgeoning

Bloom cut short

As pieces of tinsel roll

Between grubby hands

 

Somewhere dark

A candle was snuffed

Five small puffs

Blew it out

Each breath a string of our sins

Perplexing choices

 

I cradled

A deep sense of loss

Stark futures

Scribbled grey

Shades of inhumanity

As lilies withered
