The Untitled Chronicles ~ No. 88 ~

Jonathan J Ames

An end to cruelty's pleasure, tormenting the innocent.

Held tightly,
this shoelace embrace
in the realm of broken smile,
these brilliant musical nothings
conjure a mangled heart.

Then through salvation's spectacles,
a glance forces an arduous remembering.
Still, there's no tear
nor whisper wind fear,
which may pass the dormant soul.

Sentenced to stand in repose, for all the world to see.
