Wandering Warrior’s


By Kelli Sheckler-AmsdenPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

there’s a hard protective shell

guarding the softness of the heart

from the wound's I hide so well

a guardhouse crafted from the start


shielding my steps in the shadows

images of angels on the wall

battered and bruised, faithfully follow

wherever I wander down the hall


spirits linger, gliding freely

in a flash of my illusion

a black star rises from the heat

signaling a calm and sure conclusion
