209 – Night watch

Pieces
Scattered
On the pavement.

Memories
Of shattered
Roses.

Jagged
Edges from
A broken heart.

Invisible
Paper cuts
From a goodbye letter.

Random
Footsteps
Going nowhere.

Smell
Of bourbon
And despair.

Lonely
Cigarettes
In a dark room.

Empty
Space
Between the sheets.

Waiting
For a text
To break the silence.

Hoping
For a Phoenix
From cold ashes.

Ready
For the promise
Of a fresh start.
