Souls That Are Gone

Their souls are gone
Eyes that are hollow
Burn inside the sun
Don’t flinch a muscle
When death comes along
Scratching at the marrow
Chilled to the bone 
Sadness carried into tomorrow
Forever their hearts un sewn
Whispers blowing the wind of sorrow
Walking together all alone
Enough pain to borrow
Black roses are strewn
Bodies buried in the shallows
Living in shadows unknown
Swinging from the gallows
In weakness their strong
Just human fallows
With souls that are gone..
