damper

by damommza & sunovawot

I need a damper In my soul, to control the flow
of ash and soot and breaking glass
and tearful winds that blow

great howling of my midnight cries that fill my tiny room
the anguish that my heart lets in
hot anger, that’s my tomb

but if the damper opens wide and lets some heat go out
will you come back and close the door
if I swear I won’t shout

or perhaps I’ll need no dampers where my heart is sure to go
the storm-clad wilds of winter
that are all I’ll ever know

no engine will provide me heat when all around’s ice-blue
and all I have is memories
of summer and of you

    I love this poem and I love the ending..it’s a joint effort that is both beautful and sad. πŸ™‚
