Broken Light

Broken Light

Love gave me kisses sweet
and held me in soft, sultry words,
only to fast fade away into the gray clouds.
Now just smeared rain remains, brushstrokes of mist
that cloud the mysteries of the cryptic sky.
What cold creatures, unknown and unseen,
creep through my mind and wander recklessly,
thinking my thoughts for me?
Light breaks into shards of hollow nights.
