Be Still

Be still
Oh feathered clutch now stifled
That shakes, a cold dog heart
Who’s whispered words from wooden doors cracked
Speak tongue of crimes and fire

Be still
Oh weathered knobby digits
Blood and bone and tragedy
That carry with you burdens soft and hard alike
Rough and stern and bold

Be still
Oh youthful cacophony aflame
Portholes starboard and aft
In swollen despair make haste and toil
Secrets kept and tarnished never

I beg of you
Be still
Be still

Be Still

Artist's Description

Sometimes our heart misleads us, our hands betray us, and our mind is powerless to stop them.
