Empty Sky

Emptiness consumes
Blood and Heart
And Breath
Leaving nothing
But shadow
And mist
Carving depths
No number
Of tears
Can fill
Veiling eyes
That search
Forever
For a star
That can pierce
The poison
Clouds
Trapping
A soul
Among eternity
And a moonless
Night
Dark air filled
With the
Weakened sighs
Of a god
Battered by
Pretenses
Of joy and
Sunlight
No one peers
Through the
Nothingness

Is it that
They cannot
See or
Will not look?

It matters
Not.

Dawn is but
A distant
Memory that
Burns the eyes
That have lived
In darkness
Quietly.
