Timid Temerity

The weather is humid, and the breeze cold
The darkness seems to pierce without your eyes
That burns like a lamp that shimmers its gold
In flames that warm my freezing desires.

Redeem me from the talons of nature.

I misplace emotions and suffer angst,
I rue the choices and all of the boos
That echo from the pits of gory past.

Should I trip over and fatally crash
Will I land in a new bin full of trash?
