Live long enough and you?ll fill up 
the nothingness with no more than a dry wind 
that pirouettes and furls itself 
into a crackling ball of fire
blackening a once virgin heart...

For the future is gone - 
a mere relic of ghostly thoughts 
and relinquished dreams;
of the lost luster of silk that graced
satiny legs that were once my salvation...

where time has been spent;
having unleashed a death mist 
that suffocated life into utter darkness, 
that immolated beauty and truth;
that drowned hope and love.
