'Storm and Grace' by @CharIsWriting

Round cheeks

Rosy with sleep

Laughter drifting

Dark hearts lifted

They tiptoe

Through splintered

Toys and dreams

Gathering tattered

Dregs of strength

Their rotted pillars standing

Beneath walls

Windblown and crumbling

Dry leaves

And softened winds

Taunting the candlewax

Dripping

Through windowpanes all cracked

The curtains swirling

The family

Robbed of home

And peace

Their ravaged rooms

Left twisting

With bulletproof grace.
