An empty whisper, a hollow sound

Apollo's gaze lingers here no more

Sentinel of life's muse, I no longer stand

Frail, beaten, tunneling underground

 

Only one mantra rings true

Hope is the inspiration of fools

Shepherding a blind flock to its doom

Drowning the weak in dark pools

 

The hourglass,  nature's unique remedy

To happiness's impoverished destiny

A recurring delusion, a reverie

Bordering on insanity

 

Certainty is a fair weather friend

Yet never again will I fall prey

Forgetting my mind, falling astray

Reason will never turn me away

 

It is said all things fade away

Bruised fists holding the numbness at bay

A role no dream can make me play

Sore eyes, find another place to lay

 

Nothing can ever compare

With one's first winter,one's first spring

Yet their novelty strays,

Just as an instrument loses its ring

So does minds eye wander to other things
