, , , , ,

Steel wings spread like a waiting room

Engulfing heart-beats

And silencing sighs

Casting shadows which drown out sound:

Words like yesterday

And memories gone

Lost behind the sofa’s cloak,

And you are gone:

A vapour trail swallowed by

A voracious sky

An orphan insatiable in his need,

And you are gone,

Engine roar which once cut the air

Now whimpers like

A wounded beast

The understanding of demise now clear:

Words not said

And moves unmade

Lost forever in regret,

And you are gone:

A thousand miles a million years

Endless silence

An ache that now will never heal,

And you are gone.
