Unwonted

By Nehema




...struggle...
Against the self
Laying blame
On
Wrong shelf

Truant
...soul...
Needing to hone
Unconnected
All alone

Uncommon
...sacred...
Beautiful being

Meaning 
Eludes
...though...
Staring
Back at you

Cracked foundation
Craving
Drips from
...fractured...
Lips

Strength found
...within...
Vulnerability

Lonely 
Runners
Our race
Isolated scorn
...forlorn...
