Works of heART// "Free From These Pages"

As blue moons rise
and red suns fall

when sleep can't find me late into the night
into the mornings hush

I know it is because I am awake
and there's no time for sleep
in times like these

cutting through lies
and history

the evidence
and poetic warfare
running down the pages of old books

A moment will come
when we are nothing left
but bone and ash

no flesh to hold or hearts to thrash
against rib cages
against these bird cages... from these pages
