locksmith

seeking to
pour myself
into her
padlocked heart
to coalesce around
the rusted tumblers
seeking
the right
combination
to unlock
the love
within her
that screams to me
in the silence
between thunderous
heartshivers

an amateur
locksmith
locked out
of his own
perpetual longing
out all night
helping others
escape
the darkness inherent
in a world
filled with
filed keys
that never quite fit
no matter how
mercurial the nature
of metallic flaws
