So My Heart I’ll Guard

I could have been,
I say over and over.
I want to cleanse a
new life while sober.
All I can think
in the mirror blink
I in darkness sink,
a weak link.
I have some idea
of the war raging
outside my door so
me I am caving.
I pray to the blue
because I needed to.
A path that soothes
from my rebel youth.
The twisted barbs
in my heart its shards
they break I bleed
so my heart I’ll guard.

    Jared, I’m sorry to write this here, but I wanted to make sure you’d see it. Would you be willing to give me permission to link to your page for an award post I’m doing? Otherwise, I can simply write your name without the link. It’s an appreciation post of sorts.
