when everything else fails

Sunless Days

tell me how
i burned to ashes
now in dust covered
this pale ivory frame
of mine

tell me will you
tales of sunless days
since now the flame is gone
you the exhausted globe
becomes mine

do you feel it
flames turned to dust
feet rested on rust
this end
is ours

oh sunless earth
i pity your horizons
now left to dark and gloom
this ending
is yours and mine

  1. A tragic beauty, as always, my dark spirited friend. I have missed your work. So glad to see you posting again. The progression of “mine” “mine” “yours” and “yours and mine” is very effective in moving the verses

  4. I haven’t visited your blog in the longest time. I’ve forgotten how wonderful your poetry is; dark and deep. May I nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award?
