missing the mark

climbing up the valley
i found you in the clouds
solid air
alive with daggers
sharp and thin
unforgiving
blades of truth
cast hard
against the living
a shield hung round your neck
hammered strong in youth
battered now
that second skin
decaying from within
your stars hung in back alleys
blinded by the plight
angels lost in apathy
hiding in the night
thought that you would stay awhile
grace the moments with your smile
softly on a promised breeze
wrought in discontent
you floated on blue currents
seeking refuge in the trees

    This is wonderful: you write with such passion and insight

    esto me lleva a una época y un lugar, escapándose especialmente a los árboles, esos muchachos como ángeles con los corazones de las dagas, usted nos toma allí en estas palabras escritas: this takes me to a time and a place, especially escaping to the trees, those boys like angels with hearts of daggers, you take us there in these written words

  • i’m honoured and humbled by your words…. a fellow journeyman i do believe…. beware of angels bearing shiny gifts eh? thank you so much…….b
