Oh how we fed so hungrily
our bellies fat with lofy lies
love whispered in the soft warm dark
and tongues drip empty promises
And time and tide do steal these things
that tender once now feel so spent.
I see you, cold and breathless still
Uncaring gladly watched you pale,
yet yearn, fools heart, for one last touch
while like bright stars dissolved at dawn
you fade yet hold tight to lost truths.
And there alone reside in tattered robes of rage
And home made crown of sharpest thorns,
so safe behind tall castle walls
untouched by all but darkest self.
