Poem: The Heart Careful

the heart careful
in its fragility
shakes and shudders
from the slightest sound
watches breathlessly
for evil demons risen up in dark
to seek out sinners for whom they can claim

the heart careful
carves out talismans
to ward against night
where deepest fears lurk
unspeakable things
that prayers said just right may save careless souls
and shine bright against hell spawn as a bane

A bonus Duodora from MsJade‘s prompt yesterday that didn’t quite meet the theme.
