Living Loveless

Written by: Steve Voorhees

A breath escapes this lonely soul
 jilted sigh expels it heavily        falling flat
From on my back I see the stars align 
  ...but only in other skies
        as charcoal cumulous and birds of prey loom in mine
Each stab wound scars and scathes.
   they accumulate-

Her indifference kills in it's lack of scorn
   or spite...just apathetic attacks
Unprovoked and careless
Inclinations to instigate strife bring flavorful drama to her life...
and misery to mine

I helplessly fall into these traps
seeking out affection in the dryest wells
hitting bottom and licking the stone
for it's scarcest moisture
Parched and living loveless
