Sad Lines By The Sea

The screaming sadness invades me Echoes of boundless despair Snaking through my heart Withdraws a thousand tears. Defeat encamps within my eyes When the embers of dreaded thoughts Disarms swift my sturdy joy In autumn's silence by the wavering sea. I hate that rotten stench that lingers The shattering dreams The wreckage of deserted love The stinking bitter wine of hate The black shrouded whispers of foes Storming through my life With love's savage deceit. The blistering days By the shorelines of death Drawing the first cold strands of grief. I lay in the empty highways of hopelessness Then the skies would descend Choking my last strand of breath On this weary loveless earth. Like a dog I crawl In moss and in the lifeless dirt With discreet pain Toiling through my veins. When the quivering stars of night Would break asunder!

    At some point in life we feel such misery and despair that hope seems bleak but this period that cast a gloomy shadow on our life is only temporary cos light will surely shine again after every darkness..Beautiful piece.
