Fortified Spirit


The nearly flawless curve of her mouth
Expertly fortified with scarlet shine
Seldom gives way to its hidden truth
That all is, after all, quite far from fine

How easily she buries them skeletons
Crusoe’s uncharted isles in her mind
An art she has a long ago mastered
Making every pain too tough to find

Life of late is quite the wayward child
Oh how she tugs harder at the reins
Letting go is obviously too appealing
But defeat isn’t entertained in her veins

Another day rears its head behind the dawn
But all cobwebs she has confined to night
So what if the back’s against a cold wall
For sure she isn’t going down without a fight

About CoherentBabbles (Dee)

I live life on my own terms, from eating chocolate icecream on a rainy evening to hopping into puddles to scribbling anything that impacts me to humming a tune lying on the couch. Yada yada. This is my scribble page - Life, as I see it.
