Gray leaden murkiness rests in the light hours
For which there was no light
Their barren lifelessness was visible, as their arms wobbled
Cracked and scorn beaten down
Dry as the desert, the tears have bleed away
Sucked out and left to wander 
And so they have lost against the truculent world 
 Numb, inept and ossified spirits  
Crushed like pellets of a beautiful rose 
Torn from their stem of the pulse 
Slowly evaporating into a dull colorless dust 
No longer of value for they have shed there hold to dwell
