Deep in the Skin

deep in the skin holds secrets.

pockets of toxic thoughts
linger from a beaten dead horse.

Boxing shadows and no one knows
because they live in caves in the middle of
a colony far beyond the milky way.

deep in skin a colony of another order
parades to hold a meeting to bring down
the wholesome line of defense.

The heart cries for help to be delivered
from the wrath of toxic thoughts,
looking for a remedy outside the wall
of skin.

As prayer would have it, in mercy
the Spiritual Comander arrives
in time to dismantle their destructive coup.

Our thoughts held in captivity, free
to rebuild the torn, abandon city.
