The breath of dawn
breathes crisp
before the first sigh
of light
stirs the sunshine
suffocating the night
left with no choice
but to succumb
awakened in a fight.
Through the waking trees
blows a breeze
trailing behind
a vibrant voice
full of life
welcomed by a wish
that’s soon to follow
to fill the space
where heartbreak
long ago left hollow
It was a whisper
with which he was branded
that still haunts him
with reckless abandon
though it builds him
at length
with more and more
caressed by a heart
so soft and subtle
so saturating and sweet
pulling him from the rubble
where his ends
well they should
finally mean to meet.
