No Shame

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2009 by 1writegirl

In the fierce
And unforgiving
Heat of the inferno

Standing on the
Edge
Of blackness

Cornered by reality
Gaping holes of

Sordid

Savior or saint
Matters not
All are sucked inside

One moment maybe two
Of breath
Of brief escape

Beckoning reprieve on a
Thin ledge of comfort

Dream in the eye of the nightmare
Life in the heart of death

Refuge from the madness
In this there is

No shame
