gone

feel it wasting away
love shedding itself
eyes dry from misuse
lost the need to dream
gone out on a cold day
no food or drink or destination
hope to find myself some way
this can’t be all I’ve found

time has set itself aside
resting inside my belly
thought we’d be somewhere else by now
life has gone astray

we are all beacons for that light
thought I was special then
now I am nothing but unfinished work
poems of pure impatience

maybe some day that dreams will return
the light will shine throughout me
for now regret lays heavy on my shoulders
help me find my path

the word spelled into my soul
conjured stories of hell foretold
distance between myself and I
there was a child who created
but now
he will die
