What is Pure

if we were to share time, 
lets strip the walls of
our shivering, jaded words -

with eloquence, it empowers us
when we are vulnerable 
and our tears connect dots once lost -

the floor with shards, ache further travel
the vanity, fabric voice, cold hands
knit distant lullabies, whence
the darkness once hailed.

seconds fly like paper planes -
montages of scars layer cake
upon cake, and candle upon
candle to the silence of a single chair.

if we were to share time
heart to sound, our tones 
unadulterated, embrace our sighs - 

with truth, even the murky dilutes -
speak without walls…
