Apostasy Flush

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2019 by dc

They faltered around town
Like their lives depended
On heathens and histrionics,

There were too many distant dreams,
Too little time to gather their thoughts
Or soothe the pain in their hearts
And sit back in the warmth of each other;

They broke their hopes
Under twisted skies at night,
Covered the streets in light,
And just rolled around in the dirt,

There was something forever wrong,
An awkward, disjointed hush,
All thirsty for curses,
The apostasy flush.
