Strange Refrains (poem)

Updated on December 2, 2015

Release the minion marching through your mind

Cast off the callus clothing of the day

Your ears are here awaiting to be kind

As arms prepare to share a gentler sway


Ring out the rowdy rumors from outside

And take me to the temples of the pain

Warm fingers bring their comfort to provide

As kisses cast us past such strange refrain


Refrain some cinder singes from the past

Refrain some straw that strayed to stay awhile

Refrain a chain to sorrows we’ve amassed

Refrain restrains your beauty and your style


So help me hold the heaven I adore

Extinguish flames of tattered tales of yore
