Day 8: “Her Heart”


such purity surmised of a hidden spirit

buried in seams of fluorescence and lust

unseen, barring her recessive lips,

their constriction fostering the furtive hush.

the absence of mind so oft supposed

of a girl who seeks shadows in coveted light

is deceit to carry inadvertently and

naught but obstruction in her stride

for in her chest there lays a heart —

through patience it waits idly

and deem this be your formal appeal

to fill this bitter vacancy.
