dirt under the nails....

a pile of clothes filled with dust and sweat
a bible with a bent black corner
and a haunted mirror

I comb the cracks looking
for miracles and find just scratchs

the flurry of snow is still cascading
against the gentle balance of your
cheek blushed with the chill

Editing stage: 


you have always been most helpful xena
spelling is not a strong spot for me
I most appreciate those that value worth
in the proper use of words

Thank you very much
