Lost Keys


I walk the line between good and evil

embracing this adrenaline high as I teeter

between one side and then the other


The rush of air as I fall from heights

borne on walls I’ve taken a lifetime to build

set me free, set me free


Love never discovered wages war

with love all-encompassing like a black moon rising

above a cold sun plying the world with false warmth


Darkness and light meld until days become bathed

in a palette washed in shades of grey

Is my weakness a veiled attempt at being clever?


Set me free


Oh, I may be on the side of angels

but don’t think for one second

that I am one of them


The distinction between heaven and hell blurs

as I realize the staircase between the two

runs both ways, all at once structured and fluid


And so I’ll continue this high wire escapade as

I borrow from the good to balance the bad

knowing I am the one holding the key

  1. thank you for playing the Sunday Writing Prompt 🙂

    You’ve explored the topic in a very creative and interesting fashion, introspective without being so intimate as to be exclusionary, which means this has a lovely contemplative feeling. There are some very bold ideas here – love undiscovered wages wars – and love all encompassing like a black moon rising – very charged ideas – but ultimately, well carried and worthy of some time to just sit with these ideas – rich and full.

    Great job 🙂
