Dust & Decay

A house of dust
Lies at the edge
Waiting for silence
To whisper decay

A brittle woman
Sits broken in despair
Her eyes sunken
Forever condemning

A road abandoned
Is there indifferent
Knowing your steps
Are futile as the rain

A life wasted
Came to pass
In this house

A violent wind
Rose suddenly
Sweeping all
Away into nothing

A silent twilight
Heavy with regret
Crickets sing sadly
The day finally dies.
