Circle of Strife


An endless canyon

Masks midnight cries

Drowned out by pillows

On your bed's side


Alarm clocks sing

There's been no rest

Hands reach out

Only air caressed 


Sulking breaths

On bathroom mirrors

Messages of past

Brought to appear


Hands pressed to wood

Outlined by tears

Leave ghostly hands

Engraved in veneer


A sea of dust

From storms untamed

With exception of

Your picture's frame


An endless ritual

No foreseen change

Once out of love

Now more deranged


House lies haunted

Ghost's memories

You'll live forever

Immortally in me
