They Are Lonely Rhymes

Wisdom's faces strung by gestures,
It Speaks, It Laughs, It Cries.
Futures hands assimilated by tails,
Who are they, You were we, I was them.

Spaces heart burned by icy desires,
I want you, I need you, I miss you.
Dreams eyes found by light,
Ones misgivings, Ones willpower, Ones tenacity.

Souls neck kissed by darkness,
She is forgotten, She is lonely, She is missed.
Values stomach twisted by reason,
With stillness, Comes demands, For caution.

Words spine snapped by surrender,
He hates war, He hates darkness, He hates sorrow.
Times emptiness overflowing with burden,
They stand together, They embody all, They are Lonely Rhymes.

Not sure exactly what to make of this, but how you wrote it was simply amazing. The way you weaved the words together created a tapestry of pure intrigue. Keep it up.
