Poem – “Let the Dust Fall” – Romance – 7/4/2020

Lean out your life,
Broken, into the next page.
The messenger
With his scribbles
Is so often, the hastily-written note.

Let the tyrant fall
From your heart,
For he has eclipsed enough stars.
Will you pledge your safety
In my arms?

Holding nails to the cross,
While your wrists bleed a trail.
We can drink Heaven.

We can empty it,
The suffering,
To wield forgiveness upon a battered heart.

Our love will be dark,
Though possess light enough to break the silence.
