Motionless Abandon

A Blog Less Traveled

A Forgotten Life

On an empty stage whispering to an audience of one
Staggering through a deluge of words and dreams
Pain and tears begin ravaging awakening memories
Once lost in pervading mists on the distant horizon

Exploring shadow thoughts through lingering fog
Escaping the darkness of a long neglected mind
Desires flock, wailing in a harmony of loneliness
Shaken from their reverie by a fetid air of despair

A beggar sits, beset with motionless abandon
Reaching into the ruined harbours of rejection
Bereavement shattered with the coming twilight
A sadness feasting on scraps of a forgotten life
