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!
