painting him in blurry shades

of what was beyond his sight,

the artist took back the damage done,

and showed him the true colors 

of what he stored under his hat.

crown

reflection in a wishing well

of a paper crown staring back at him

as a last chance reminder to break the spell,

 of love never learned

and escape the kingdom called,

no worth.

“Don’t Judge Yourself, others will gladly do it for you”. Pedroso

covered

turning down his blessings today

in hopes of something better tomorrow…

he unrolled his sleeves of emotions,

unbuttoned his great shirt of expectations,

slipped off his old shoes of excuses,

and crawled into bed where he was

covered and comforted by his lover ..

Regret.
