Red Light District

mindlovemisery

red light

To reveal my heart

Is to invite infection

Another layer

To stymy the flow of blood

Another truncated smile

*

Delivered with grace

Despite an abiding nausea

I retract my claws

And shroud my spirit within

The flesh can act unaided

*

Hope is salt water,

A necessary anguish

That can, if misused,

Result in fatality

Survival is tantamount
