Lifeless

  
Charming, witty endless banter,

whispered dreams,

and charnel prose,

sprinkled with a mystic promise.

Sordid mildewed fares and tokens,

memories frost, 

all truth unspoken.

Artful, pretty proclamations,

lullabies to misplaced fancy.

senseless past,

and faithless present,

no shining future I’ve to tend.

A blind eye turned-

then quickley burned.

I listen to my sage excuses,

lacking heart,

these silly muses.

Ashes fed to dying flame;

passionless,

no guilt or shame.

Just this plant I tried to fuel,

conceived of plastic leaves and shoots;

there are no buds, no colored blooms…

no grasping reaching hungry roots-

for nothing living ever grows 

in cold and silent,

empty tombs.
