while this bares
in a tone of blue-gray it
lingers of nothing more than

it's emotionless and
embraces me within the absence of my muse

a secluded whim of
dispassion slays my artistic

i mourn
between each despairing breath
and readily surrender my heart
for the price
of ullage

drowning, drowning...
i curse the heaven's for such an unfathomable

where are the days that have
never dreamed of quarreling with my soul--
when life bequeathed to me a beauty
of such imaginings?

how i cry out
to part with my seducing gift but,
through chicanery, my voice perfectly fails.

i am
