These answers lying in desert sands

justify the prayers of the fallen

Empty songs of desperate longing

screamed and heard by no one

written it in hieroglyphs

that spell the doom of all who lived here once before

The meaning is the same

and the voices fall flat

who read the funeral rites of ancient souls

fallen in warning of the horizon’s storm

who lie waiting for the the vengeance of a coming star

What is your vice?

  1. Amazing. Sends chills down to my soul…a fate that awaits us all one day.

    My imagination is my vice, found in writings I dare not share…some of it sneaks through now and then.

    Other vices — a good sangria, baked goods, hot cream tea and delicious food!

  2. I have a hard time dealing with commitment. I always like to leave before the other person can have time to. Though there is a reason for my vice.
