the crossing

back there gates swung in dust

watchtower stood

brooding the dead city

devastation lingers

fierce silhouettes

of passion spent

jagged rock bleeds

thoughts of you

amid the bleached bone

of red hair

lighting the crossroads

hunger rises again

the lost and the lonely

beneath a stone

your image taunts

i follow.
