Sighing One Charred Name

Ballads soaked in black
Bleed through drywall cracks

Floor tiles curled and crushed
Indifference layered rust

Mazes of iron pipes
Map unrelenting nights

Dusty petals hidden
Ashes trail unbidden

Shimmer beyond claim
Sighing one charred name

Scrape along your skin
Clawing their way in

    1. Hi Rich, I’m glad you like the imagery. I see what you mean about “Shimmer beyond claim” although I hadn’t noticed it myself. Hmm…I wonder what an alternate ending would look like? Thanks for presenting this to me in a different light. I like it 🙂
