#75 (the last kiss of iron)

hidden promises

beneath the frozen lake

of his despair

feeding from the bottom

of doubt and agony


stolen glances

behind a sleek counter

keeping him at the top

of a fool’s game

no one was winning


closing in

as his masquerade

failed in a flash

sharpness

tickling his throat

the last kiss of iron

was a broken vow
