MY SOLITARY LETTERS - Awaited Burden



Awaited Burden


The chimes have called.
Breath has been blown into the hourglass;
The sands rebel against the law.
The days will soon mimic the clouds of gloom.
The chimes have called.
The windows are tired of watching;
You've looked through them and hoped for voices:
With her last breath, the shooting star did weep for you.
The sign is nigh,
For the knelling bells to stop the mourn:
The sands will chase again.
But to rain down sculpted dreams,
Would you feed yourself starvation?
