orphan

BensTattoo3a-1

 lonely is this heart that beats
relentlessly within me
i’ve grown weary of its aches and pains
bumps and scratches
for the sake of love
feeling so cast off at times
ever listening for the Abyss to call me to its breast
its orphaned child
longing for her mother to gather her up
