Desire’s Death

Updated on March 13, 2014

Ode to Desires' Death

Broken under affliction

Desires come at cost

Dreams, a falsified future

Engulfed in woes and strife


Pride swept way, by storms

Strength burned to ashes

Love is not enduring

Misery prevails existence


Wounded whispered cries

Falling upon deaf ears

Soul relinquished, thy heart

As prostitution, sells the flesh


Given for only need

Soul sank, to poverty

Brains become numb

Survival played with greed.


Death becomes thy spirit

Suffocation by human touch

Evade communication

Once death, conquers love


Breath comes so shallow

Confusion is abound

Sparkles awaken beasts

Their victory, earth’s surround.

Just Me
