Protecting The Heart - Poem by Simon Collins

I walk away
into the night alone
your tobacco tongue
licks the lips of fate
you will not be mine
though mine you are to take
why load your healing heart
with weighted lust
when honor lights a flame
just as hot
but lingers sweet
into tomorrows mist
so goodbye I say
under love this code of trust
tonight I walk away
among the starry dust
