Shelter

Deaths_Sanctuary_Wallpaper_b72dwThey pass in columns
Ordered rows of chaos
A stirring in their eyes
Agitated by experience
That loss of innocence
Clouding perspective
Robotic in the shuffle
Despite the pain
Pushing it down deep
Where secrets hide
Searching for light
So pure like desire
But it’s not here
This place of mercy
Shut up in their bones
Waiting to breathe
To release on cue
And flow into the sea
Their faces turn in time
Facing the far wall
Words like hieroglyphs
From ceiling to floor
Welcoming like old friends
Who scream on demand
In little wooden boxes
When the fire begins.
