Alms For A Hooker

Treachery smiles at the scent of trust
 Innocence brooding pale, pensive to the moment
 A fragile soul steels at instinct’s forlorn toll
 As life incites another dark tryst

 Souls battered in contracted moments
 Held relentlessly at deceit’s smirk
 Runaway spirits cleaving to hope
 While dark sapience grapple to spurn

 Her sighs hollow the tired universe
 Speeding her to time’s silent edge
 Every turn rages to the temporal end
 To finish at life’s Elysian start

 A life born to survive blows
 Tempered to fervid carnal throes
 Chastened by this world which loves to impose
 Blooming to the nights that she has to adorn.
