Dust to Dust

Updated on December 28, 2017

Silently my mood redress,

tangled thoughts seem in a mess,

the mind unkind tries to tease,

mixed emotions like to squeeze,

light fades from gold to grey,

particles of dust float and sway,

along a beam of hazy view,

tears of rust slipping through,

beyond the echoes feel the noise,

trauma settles no surprise,

like a weight that has me down,

uncomfortable dusty flowing gown,

can see the temper fly within,

bloated out turning thin,

colours like water slowly drip,

mingled together become psychedelic,

emotions that held me tight affix,

my heart to stone my eyes to bricks,

my flesh gathers into dust,

sweating bones begin to rust,

back to earth I finally tread,

spirit released now has fled,

all I have that's left behind,

are random memories of your mind,

some words of love you neglect to say,

on yellowed paper fade away,

ashen clouds twirl asunder,

flesh to dust you have to wonder,

was this all we're meant to know,

a life undone that tried to grow,
