Velvet Pen

written with my velvet pen
I wish to speak quietly of love
love that has no hurry or quarrel
yet there’s a rust mark of barbed wire
upon this heart where the fence keeps me out

the seconds in the clock
tick with the past of days gone
bleach will not scrub away some stains
nor be this my desire for we cannot undo
our bubble has burst and love drips upon the earth

there is no malice here
I have no need to make spears
intentions are honest with candid thoughts
sadness cloaks my heart but not the prevailing curtain
a hope more is in my soul that not all is lost at sea for me
