Pillars of Salt

You see them across the horizon  
bitter emblems of statuesque loss  
jilted hearts turned pillars of salt  
looking contrary to the way they walked  
Gazing back to what was destroyed    
by brimstone and abandonment  
deserted by lovers they once believed    
could absolve their emptiness  
Condemned to isolated purgatory;  
a self-inflicted demise    
to an uninhabited Island of one  
amid an ocean of bobbing Life  
Fly traps of broken-heart  
resentful tongues lash out  
devouring whole cartilage and bone  
to fertilize envy and doubt    
Our Spirit doesn't resent their hate  
but emits a balm of Belief;  
an intercession their pain abate:  
a Petition for their Peace  
That they learn Forgiveness  
for wrongs they each endured    
that Love dissolve their bitter salt  
through tears of Hope and Trust
