DEEP CUT

revealing the flesh beneath

faith for fuel


artificial lights

the glow on your face

go to sleep, O stars


disfigured clouds

adorn the heavenly bodies

pain- a choice


scattered across rooms

blood relations- separated by borders

to each his own grief


to my future self, to you:

have no regrets- poetrybe brave

be forever
