View From A Blackened Heart
Author: Mike


A crumbled block of stone,
Surrounded by memories of the past.
Overgrown with weeds,
Poison ivy covering the once
Gold words.

Cobwebs fluttering in the soft breeze,
Glistening in the autumn sun.

Branches of the trees,
Once laden with emerald leaves,
Now left bare and empty..

Twigs, half buried in the fresh earth
Rising up towards the sky,
Seeking to grow,
To be alive.

But they fail,
Crushed and trampled by the
ways of mankind.

The screams of a thousand phantoms of yesterday
Echoing across the desolate woodland.

A flock of birds flies off as one,
Leaving an empty, skeletal forest
To its slumber.
