The long dead life

Looking in the mirror Dead eyes blunted and wasted A broken face scarred and withered The smile a whisper of sand on a ocean desert Tiny downward curves mirror either side A face of abdication and abandonment No fight left, no warrior left standing Time pushes me backwards to stumble over life Long spent tears and love curdled Once unmovable now unmoved Rejecting the image in hateful disdain Pity for the life betrayed and mourning the long dead life
