We Who Mingle in the Battered Sky

Bruised and leading you on with the purpose of pounding
Of the heart's beat of trauma leaning on time's  message
Leaving mystery for misery an uneasy diplomacy
Recent battles bleeding shame in uncertainty
Divided by you and security we welcome the wandering blessed
Wrongly promised warnings left for the dust and brilliant sun
While many perform for no one but the birds of sky and ragged tree
We who mingle in the battered sky whisper to the battleground
Reminders and echoes the stains of old songs
I walk in washes humming deserted conversations in dreams and storms
Tossing and returning restless light warming my breath on mirrored back
Slipping out of tears of staring dolls freakishly friendly stationed defenseless
Baited to brand framed for love in this event a momentary highlight
A remarkable feat lost to the sound of the wind of blind loss
Reeling from the fortunes of the damned fame and infamy the destination of the forgotten
Include me in your validations and hold out hope for the resistance
Their bristled ends cut to defend marked to secure my place to watch and wait
Beside the scene of unfolding wonders in the wilderness
Where nest and trickled love find rest in rock and sand
Where I stand in blood stained sun rising to calm the cries of the moon too soon for some
