I found her again
Broken into naked pieces
Scattered to the heavens
Offered for redemption

There were faded footprints
Echoes of embers' flight
Burned vestiges 
Night's pillaged light

I felt love’s ruin
Ashes eating Eden’s seed
Flickering barbs of sacrifice
Life's stillborn dreams

There was still hope
Clinging to blackened feet
Coddling one another
Beneath quivering sheets

I found her again
Midnight makeup bled
I touched her weeping hand
As I knelt beside her bed

    Produced beautifully. Narrative has a sound. All the best.
