this is in response to a daily prompt
Sharpened swords colliding in angst.
Splatters of the damned.
Tattoos, scraped much deeper,
than the inked veins.
Memories of the tarnished,
Clothed goodness, left untouched.
Closeted grace, shattered by the dusk.
Fires blazed, left ashen to the dust.
left living among the lost.
