careless words and those unspoken

break a heart too far downtrodden

void of loving care and broken

walking lone and sad forgotten


would I were of eggshell made

could scarce be any weaker

so far down have i been laid

my life could be no bleaker


though smallest gleam diffuse

dark nights unfailing gloom

such light could not produce

such hope to dispel doom


cries in darkest night

fail this pain relieve

even morning bright

offers no reprieve


there is no grace

within this roil

no hope replace

this morbid coil


every breath

urgent plea

living death

void of glee


none care

for me

or dare

to see
