Listless Fate

listless is my fate
repetition of nature
a heart in flames
blaze of her green eyes
a master dare not tame

another crow
perched on a closed gate
resting on
a chance taken too late
black feathers on her face
a mask the tears made
she doesn't fly by
her mistakes
wings of the grave
listless fate

hidden dreams
a world away
sleeping by
an ocean of faith
Jesus glided
on a mermaid's wake

shells of grace
lined with angel lace
wash to a communal shore
but she never walks
on that sand anymore

I'm trying
to understand
why I'm dying
for dirty hands
I'm flying
with wings of the grave
I'm writing
a listless fate
listless fate
