Bloody Tears & Silver Skulls

written by: James Dennis Casey IV

@LouisianaJames

 

A prayer for the wild at heart

Kept in a dirty cage underneath

An old abandoned staircase

Keeping time with ugly kings

Screaming loudly in silence

There is no redemption for you

With bloody tears in tired eyes

Silver skulls upon bony fists

Bringing the only recompense

Change comes on dreary wind

In silence there are a million

Different things to say unsaid

Holding on to a reflected self

Here in time with you my love
