New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Lock me in

When the new day
breaks, cloaked
in shades of muted silver
clouds loom heavy, dark
fierce storms rise, smoky
somber on distant horizons
will there still be safety
in your shelter -
a place for me?

When lightning strikes
slicing in furious, bitter anger
catapulting flashes, twists of fire
thunder roaring, rumbling
like deafening distant drums
will you still offer
the protective shell
once reserved as
a haven for me?

When the demons of evil
jealousy, greed and faceless fear
advance, a tangible threat
eager to devour the flesh
from my weary bones
drain the lifeblood
from my fragile veins
will you still remain
my tempered armor?

When the world grows
bleak, cold, desolate, grim
pillaged by pirated invasion
souls polluted, poisoned
belongings battered, burnt
our temple denied, desecrated
will my heart still be
locked up, treasured
eternally safe within yours?

Artist's Description

Ever noticed how some promises and commitments seem to be nothing but empty words?

(PS: …merely a personal ponder…)
