hat

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.

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.

sheets

in the cold sheets

there was nothing for him to believe in

except the trouble in his veins,

beating to the bad habits of his broken heart.

hook

dressed in old mistakes,

his tired mind led him home.

exhausted from always 

chasing after something better,

he unpacked his ragged heart

from worn out luggage 

and returned it to the darkened 

hook in his chest.
