Aging Regrets

The sponge of years has sucked me dry of youth a million tears I've poured from pain untold there's no reprieve for one who's long of tooth contrary is the stage of getting old. The dustcloth of my world is weighted by grey burdens from too many years of dirt no longer can I sweep to see the sky collecting cobwebs, useless and inert. The tides of youth no longer wait for me that younger ship I was so long before was washed away like sand along life's sea to leave an old wreck keeling on the shore. AS twilight fades into my cloudy eyes releasing icy salt I share the pain of one too many long and cold goodbyes that will never hear hello from life again.
