Tiptoeing Past the Past…

Prints float dark over the soul
Trust – a waning concept
Under the heels of captured smiles
A wary heart, gate open to fear
Terrified of being temporary
Smiles captured and discarded

Goodbye’s destruction crushes
Love vulnerable to shadows of the past
Hope, trust, and self-confidence vital sources of light
Snatch the heart from the abyss of despair
Back to where the soul belongs –
In love…
