Softer Takes

Leaving home, reality bites
Swallowing so much more
than it could

A piece of you
its meal

Not just any fare
but of mind
body and

Heartfelt circumstances, painful
Seeking comforts rest
Leaning on

Hard to believe it caught up with you
and softer takes relieve
for the moment

A kiss warmer, embrace with intent
holds for now, an escape
of sorts from a
colder Hell

Time seems to have stolen more than
its given

Breath but one of
many things

Keeping to things sane just
not the

Not of theirs that made things right
Wrong tripped up such

Their taste still lingers
reminding one of
softer takes
of good,
of love
of them
