encapsulated harmony

by Kyle Anne Kish

a lonely reign
will not sustain
the places
we have dusted our pain

just burst right
in and cover your
ears with doubts

then gobble up your fears

once, twice, thrice
i was told to heal
the sick and care
for the old

by golly the bus
came by again
to take root
of my route

i shall not follow
... simply cross heirs
with wires and frrrrump
there goes the world

thick of skin
and back once more
waiting, always waiting,
at my door

Og! that "cross heirs" picks me up and spins me around. I'm a drooling fan of your hair-pin swerves and turns-of-phrase. Add your salt dashings of sadness and realities, and zoom! I'm inside your poem. ;/

Catchy linguistics throughout this rhyming piece K.A. Glad I had a chance to read it. Kudos!
