'Storm and Grace' by @CharIsWriting
Rosy with sleep
Dark hearts lifted
Toys and dreams
Dregs of strength
Their rotted pillars standing
Windblown and crumbling
And softened winds
Taunting the candlewax
Through windowpanes all cracked
The curtains swirling
Robbed of home
Their ravaged rooms
With bulletproof grace.
