Earthen Heart

the stench of death
once more betray
this aweary soul
an endless drop
of nightmarish
fleshly howls 
in heartless
dismay,

awaiting an honest 
yet detestable kiss
this heart of dirt
born an earthly
direful worm
against cold 
unturned 
stones,

an unkempt garden
of rambling paths
ever cut asunder
sinking deeper
'tween life’s 
yet soulless
bereaved 
mind,

in sempiternal battle
death’s tug-of-war 
against the sting 
of insuperable
loathly flesh
bearing its
ireless 
soul’s,

false unfaithful words
abhorrent thoughts 
of ever fleeting
hopefulness’ 
longed for
flight up
beyond
the sky
