Sharp slivers left behind..

Drops of blood ripple

the waters of the dieing.

An open wound..

Deep but not seen..

Wooden spears in the echoes

of this beating heart..

As hopelessness shatters dreams..

Ever so slowly drowning

in the bottomless black

of humanities blood filled ravine...

The heart always beating...

Yes, always bleeding..

Yet never never seen.
