the starved

Updated on November 14, 2011

alone he sits beneath the light

under brick and stone

in the wind he left he dreams

along with blood and bone

to the moon he raised his head

and shouted to the glow

"if time stood still, and robbed my will

how am I to grow"

In this fight that he called life

he went back to where he started

out of time and out of breath

the starved had soon departed.
