Life Mislaid


Tears of dark emptiness fall slowly from my eyes,
each drop bringing with it a piece of my heart.

Soaked through with sorrow, my head hung limply
from my shoulders.

Sullenly forsaken in a drifting sense of space,
mislaid.

Falling lifeless onto the pile of inhumanity, life
lies open on the hearth of death.

Bleedingly fallen, never again to rise - never again
to see a new day's dawning beauty.
