Dying Soul


I saw you standing there
Looking out over your heart break
As wave after wave
collided with your memories.
Your stark and  barren soul,
Vivid against the soft backdrop
Of the rising sun would
Not be washed away.
In perfect peace
With the world around you,
At war with the burning
Emptiness inside you,
Days linger with slow ticking minutes
Of what never could be.
It is there, inside what isn’t ours,
That I wait for you
As I watch your night time demons
Begin to darken the light of your soul.
No refuge to be found,
But then none is sought
And even I can’t take away
What you don’t want to give up.
