In a gathering of guarded smiles

Words drip like gasoline

Smoldering fires abide

Questioning minds wander

Finding dark places

Observant eyes feel

Desperation burning

Concern perishes

Where homage is expected

Hidden flames consume inspiration

Smiles become painful performances

Blink away wet eyes

Breath through nausea

Conceal expression

Pull away silently

Sun sets

New day rises

River offers healing

No unspoken needs

Awaiting sacrifice

No armor or arrows

Fish takes fly

Clearing the poison

Net of beauty

It only takes one

Keep Mending…
