Free me from this shattering star
I once softly shouted to a stranger.
Shady. Shunned. Shackled. Shhh. She said
Desires deliver such a delicate danger.
Pressure purposed to laborious life lessons
Presently pivoting on a premise of peace.
As forces fasten to this fleeting heart
My container can’t contain this lamenting lease.
Future flashes with a fallacious freeze
As allies apathize in utter abdication.
Self-starved spirits steal the warmth
And restless residence pardons permanent pacification.
So as my stellar structure blazes brightly
Harnessing heat for a hapless heart.
A mystifying millennial takes a tumbling toll
While my shoe-shined soul slowly succumbs to dark.
