As I sweep the dust

out of this heart

keep the string between us

though we’re wishes apart


A sky can’t connect mountains

I can’t catch your drift

but I’m breaking the rules

and we suddenly shift


Machines we oiled in trust

are no more for show

than a renegade emerging

from a world below


And my heartbeat’s a plan

nothing else I can make

this sharp twisted century slapped

breezes, a person could break


But nothing more pierces

this renegade’s heart

a heartache’s gate to a frontier-

this could be a brand-new start.

I like it

You have some great lines in here.  I especially like the one, "We're wishes apart."  Good stuff.
