Balance Tips The Scales

It twas dark, a hen's night 
stillness abandoned the fright 
knocks echoed freely 
and here her presence was felt 

Chimera fragments an innate realm 
unbeknownst reasons dare overwhelm 

A shoulder-companion gone lain 
unearthed my being hath slain 
seams seared and baked 
rivers red hot, unadultered she knelt 

twilight's heightened bell 
barriers bedlam befell 
curvaceous moons slipped 

Chamber's dust filled out the old 
breaths breathing in air gone cold 
pumps pursed off dire angelic lips 
breading beats inner anguish shuned

Light lingers in parchement craved 
digging deep past stones well paved 

Pebbled path's overgrowth graves utter grief 
sight lines demanded fall with Autumn's leaf 
promise skips 'cross a barren pond 
a flight trapped pain comes undone 

marched beats humble 
vagabond makings tumble 
hearts welcomed home 

Released the wilderness calls 
blessed respite guides the walls 
yellow splays the morning 
balance tips the scales

The title alone is worth reading, and the poem itself is even better :)
