Heartbreak and Wine.

Like shards of broken bottles,

you pierced through

the soles of my feet

as I walked through the dark alleys
of my soul

towards the light.

You were a beautiful idea.

But words of promise 

offered through prison bars

lose their charm.

Our destinies

have been entwined,

but never joined.

Love looks even 

more lovely 

under a veil of melancholy. 

Heartbreak, 

my muse. 

Wine, 

its enabler.

my muse.
