Block by block.
Reason and rightness
Are turret and crenellation.
Draw the bridge and drop the gate.
Silence shall reign.
Lies folded in your darkest corner,
Out of reach
Until regret runs as warm rain,
And shame becomes a tide
Rising to your battlements.
The heat of apology
A key to melt your frozen lock.
