Beyond The Undergrowth

Sometimes the right path
hides in the dense undergrowth;
asking to be sought
and dragged into clarity.
But when it finds you? Magic!

He punishes her.
A blush heats her face. Confused,
she bows her head low…

knows she’s still bound to him but
aware it’s unravelling.

Though I Roam Wild

though I may roam wild
through the deserts of despair
rain shall drive my calm 

creating joyful music
strangled by the whitest hope

since his death she spent
the days strolling archways of
their favourite park

never realising he was
walking peacefully with her
