A lonely stone arch pass guards me.
Nothing changes the stilled gaze of sorrow.
Bottomless as the pit of a dried up well.
Ageless and motionless as a hollowed tree that time forgot.
As raw, the mirrored image reflected in your eyes.
Deeply hurt, it wishes to be kept hidden.
Live another day of emptiness.
Forsaking it the earthly pleasures craved.
Life is not what it used to be.
The innocence lost forever.
The child, a memory tainted.
Waterless tears, I shed forever.
