The entirety of my resolve runs with the river of tears that
After a brief moment of suspense
Break free, carving
Cruel lines down my ravaged cheeks, a howling flood let
Loose. My eyes are
Hopeless, wretched dams,
And I lay face up in my own flesh and blood.
I lay in ruins.
My heart is an abandoned fortress
Here, the reverberating echoes mock me
There, the doors creak,
an arthritic memory of the pounding rhythm that once declared me alive.
Rusty hinges swing helplessly
A nightmarish rendition of innocent laughter
Broken wings beat, relentless.
Can anybody hear me? I'm dying inside
