An original poem.

What did it mean to touch?
All I got was the need for a crutch.
It wasn’t enough.
My body is broken.
Bruises are blossoming,
My heart is a gossamer.

Don’t want to trash in the biting wind,
I want to find peace.
To let myself breathe and be.
I cast my anchor by the shore,
Mend the sails that we tore.

My tongue coated in dust,
Trading lust for clear skies and sparkling eyes
I was on the frontlines of thrills.
Now I’m caressing the treelines and frills
I’m no longer hopeless,
No longer sinking down
my own bottomless oceans.
