Falling Silent

Devoid of life and longing,

Bittersweet pain amid

Haunting representations

Of past lives and lovers,

The vital spark lost forever

Vanished from the orbs

Where once light entered

Now closed eternally

Trapping and keeping the

Sheltered light cradled

By my hand,

Delicate and frail,

Stuttering and flickering

Along with the heart

Beating wildly in my arms,

So easily crushed, destroyed,



A thousand new voices 

Cry out as one other,

Dusty, dry, and cracked,

Fall silent

May you never fall silent!

May you never fall silent!

Long days and pleasant nights
