Unspoken words hang in the stillness of unmindful space,
  like a touch never to be felt
    A sight never to be seen
      A curl of smoke dissipating

A twist of faith has broken both wings
    Deeming, thrusting, unfeeling
      For those who can no longer cry 
           Or fly

A die is cast, rolling against time 
    Crushing, Shattering, Smashing
         A fate and destiny
            That would never be

The once welcoming arms are now closed (forever shall be)
     Faith has run its course (it was false after all)
        All that remains are tears, 
             That would never dry

A hollowness dwells within, 
  Siezing, Grasping, Clutching
    All rationale and sane thinking
       Hurling, Heaving, Tossing
                Into a void of sorrow

OH YES, a hollowness dwells within 
  Painful, Numbing, Dreary and Stark
     Warping, Bending, Blighting

        HURTING,  DIStorTING, C o N t O r T i N g,    FakinG
           What LIFE should BE
                   It all happened 

  when you left me

I may have overdone my Gerunds. Do tell me people. TY.

    Oh my goodness you are an artist, I am in awe with my firt piece read, you twist words and paint them by distorting their own letters, how effing wonderful!!!! Last line in this piece ties it together in it's own simplicity, one breathes it out slowly and it dances to fall at the very end, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and nothing less... love.jmm.

    In this case, George, (sorry I haven't read you before) I'd say the gerunds keep the piece rocking, floating, punching. Great write! I know the "Hollow" feeling. Love, Daver
