Shattering Star

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.
