Dessicated

lost_love_in_the_dark_by_er111a-d3g1781Those words I never said
Like circling vultures
In carrion waves of grain
Blackened by decay
Clouding my addled mind
With so many regrets
Pregnant pauses heavy
These unspoken sighs
Wasted in daylight
In twisted shadows
That obscure the truth
It shrivels in my soul
Gasping for satisfaction
Finding silence instead
Where words used to be
And only outlines remain
Fading in the setting sun
Of a hundred winters
This pressing utter cold
That once was desire.
