time well spent

the scars you wear
emblazoned upon your heart
push you forward, yet drag the weight

of trouble seen

in ladybug red
galloping to freedom
storm clouds crying

on the detour around the dead

we all are drowning
even when it’s dry
raging scenery dancing in the mirror

time is an illusion to no one

fractions of love
never added to much of anything
but your kiss resting on my skin

brings daybreak near

a noose and a necklace
hung together in the closet of my life
racing to be worn
before the dawn
