The Lantern

Draped in marbled colors of rust
Wording tales of tears and smiles
Subtle sweet, raging loud
Suffocating as I slowly breathe out

An endless ballet
Upon an infinite symphony
Spreading far, deepening slight
Wrapped in sights of delicate blithe

Ivory enclosure, a fragile guard
Exposing whimsical reflections astray
Contorted light, deflected whispers
Trembling frail as existence withers

Delicately showering tinkered rays
Shielding colors rich
Dry petals echoing remnants
Escaping shields of brittle chants

Tales of tattered guards
Keeping safe in frayed shards
Dyed in colors my own
Living hues like a breeze blown
