still that breath

barren as burnt bone
crushed to ash on dust
carried aimlessly away
from rock to rock,
still that breath
of you falls
clean as
raining pearls
of untouched sunlight

discarded bastard orphan
taken for nothing more
than a thrown out rag
to wipe at waste,
still that breath
of you whispers
want of
secret songs
heard only in dreaming

angry spit, poisoned blood
ripped from aching nights
walked nowhere to forget
ending where they began,
still that breath
of you holds
love, oh love
how soft your word
feels against my skin
