My Reckoning

My Reckoning short poem

Uploaded by Carson Hurley

That east wind clawed at my skin
leaving me fragile again
I was once impervious
to reckoning
but now every element
guffaws at how weak
I have become
the shrill call of the
night birds humiliate me
for I am alone again
far apart
and torn at heart

I pour a drink
to drown the torrid flames
burning me from the inside
but its no good
once a flaming bastard
always one
