Daily missive for Thursday the 15th of August.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 15th of August.

Open me
Use pliers
If you must
The edges have welded
One into another
A once pristine surface
Corroded with rust
May contain history
A mystery or two
Beneath the barnacles
And encrusted handles
Overlayed with grime
Drowning in slime
Wedged between
Penury and filth
Embossed in letters
Hellbent on sorrow
With little time
Or breath left to borrow
Lies a heart of gold
In need of rescue
A release date
Is well past due
If truth be told
It might yet be too late
But be bold
And hold steady
My saviour
Hold steady
