Poem – “Heartless Kindness” – Romanticism – 1/1/2021

Suffer what makes me
Pitiable to see
The lacking fulfillment too awful
To believe.

Rows of teeth
Make me,
The face that catches the breath
Of many seas.

I still rock waves
Within me,
Still mock myself to be saved

From this journey.

Love unites me,
Indeed to frighten me,
The places I have scattered sanctity

Behind me.

A curse I row
To an anchoring shore,
To save the one
Who never came undone.
