Portrait of a Life

Life's colors combine with a tired hearts tears
mixing in the creases of expression,
a fleeting shadow of an inner portrait,
revealing the deepest secrets
of woman and man.

Walls never meant to be scaled crumble
with visions of kind words and love's lies,
greedy tongues of fire lisp towards
the brittle paper of a new life.

Minds trapped in their crimson cells
curse the hour of first breath, while
the anguish of an hour is spilled
on paper torn into a thousand days
by hands etched with haunted times.
