Indelible

 
where did my careless heart go?    
   
hidden amongst the shattered remains    
of tea cup femininity and corset restrictions    
   
obscured by the long shadows cast    
in an empty room at noon    
   
discarded memories sit amongst the ashes    
trinkets of past lusts gone wrong    
   
sitting primly in my glass tower    
looking out at the sea at dawn    
   
my aching vessel reaches to you    
though you're a phantom    
   
a wisp of smoke    
over an untroubled lake    
   
skipping stones in innocence    
stirred waters best left alone    
   
so with bound feet    
I quietly exit    
   
knowing in my core  
I was here and left my indelible mark
