Burn

The burn began to blister
and the walk became even more
than it had been so many times before.
More than the way home
was ever meant to be,
this trail of broken toes
so casually lied about by those
who want you to take their place
and lied about by those
who are more concerned about their shoes
that they are about their souls.
