In exchange for love

Battle scars and that tattoo on your left shoulder,

Feel the burden weighing you down

Trudging along towards your souls demise.

Hollow porcelain,

Taking care as you climb that ladder –

Balancing the moon in one hand

As you reach out with the other to prick the dark velvet blanket cast over the sky

Whilst peering over the edge to find the sun sleeps soundly in her cradle
