Hushed Sentinel

Hushed Sentinel by DC Lessoway

 

popes, queens, tyrants
brutish, magnanimous, just
pauper, moneyed, common, the curious
all have met my unflinching, stoic eyes
grief finds my inorganic heart, as
I cannot spool the narrative
searing passages scribed in crimson
paragraphs of calm, chapters of war
whispers, intrigue, lovers finding
dark corners, stealing a kiss
glint, flashing iron, steal
have speckled my bulwark folds
still, hidden there, blood
of popes, queens, tyrants
brutish, magnanimous, just
pauper, moneyed, common, the curious
