I sit here
In my shadow
Wishing for some shift.
But the sun hides behind the mountains
The sea is frozen upon the horizon
And I shiver in the desert
Failing to rise.
All I can do is tremble
Trying to hold myself together
As I threaten to shatter into a million pieces
Becoming lost among the limitless sands
Of time long lost
Of memories long past
That threaten to bury me
In this darkened reverie.


I feel these fractures
Cracks core deep
I am fragmenting,
Into the Great Waste.
I am losing substance
Close to collapse.
How long till I topple
And become a ruin to be admired?
Not as a former wonder
But as a failed endeavor
To be forever,
A flawed piece
Of Creation.
