A scented streak, a sad day

A scented streak of weary sense 
replies to grief that prowls the mews
A deep green blue of wailing skies 
enshrines a mood, 
in part to please
Slow-rolled piles of willowy grass 
arouse a birth that slowly drowns
Uneasy bursts of fading wind 
align to vows inclined to cease
A caving wall 
designed for fraying stands aloof
A loosely carved memory
declines the option to rise again
A kiss that resides in me
emerges again to ask for you
The pain that lines its path
and masks your smile 
declines the scent that you live with 
Awaits a task 
designed for souls that pass…
and laden with 
unfulfilled pasts
Amusing taunts 
invite a bruising end to this
bring back the streak in troughs 
that wave my peaks
and foul my peace
