Spectre. Poem. Sara L. Russell

 7th January 2013 02:04am

Like a child who fell through the cracks in welfare
like a doll falling through a pit in a nightmare
I am reeling in time and space like a lost satellite;
drawn closer and closer to a swallowing void of dark matter

I am hopeless, futureless and desolate; abandoned in time,
No-one reaches out to catch my hand in the darkness,
Silence screams like tinnitis in the chasm of space
time lurches on and I am immobile

I am lost and broken like a shattering of dreams
like a smattering of blood, a withering of roses
there is no hope in me, there is no future, not even death;
only the beckoning  spectre of age, that makes caricatures of us all.
