Grey shadows engulf the silence
and swallow the broken chair
chastised into the corner
as cold ceramic bowls
and stained glasses,
stand in empty sorrow
and uselessness.

Frayed skin stretched over tired
bones weakened by humanity and
mentalities forced into humility
buckle under piles of misery.
A twisted mind loses in
wasted search for faith
and love.
Drained and immobile,
the eyes of ignorant innocence
plea for a nonexistent answer.

A paradise of despair is
free to mingle,
a streak of ephemeral
bliss agrees to
eternal imprisonment
under the curse of belief
until an epiphany.
