you touch her with your perfect words

she watches shy from the corner of her mind

sees the stallion burning ashen black

rear its hooves 

in crystal sands 

as feathered wings of shadows 

fall dark across her path 

she walks blind 

into the trust 

for your perfect words 

fall deep into the well of the stallions eye  

a beast that once lived at sea 

now treads this earth 

protecting her from birds of prey

for they bruise the thin blue skin of skies 

their cries are talons sharp

they would rip her eyes out 

this psyche slips like silk into the dark arcade of her mind

of your word 


for you have seen things 

and she has seen done’s 

is your word diamonds or bones 

could the dust fly like an arrow 

she shakes her mane 

the colour of sun bleached and shoots her bow

from her cage 

she tears her heart out 

and throws 

into the promise of your words
