Dark Empty Soul

by Lisa Beck-Bradford

Shimmering light peer through the bare sockets 
once where eyes rested 

Through the open pit the sound of anguish 
Struggle to escape from darkness 

The internal walls are strewn with soot 
From continuous fire that burn to destroy 

Screams, moans of agony and despair 
Are echoed being heard from afar 
Repeatedly over & over & over again 

Once strong, vibrant & vigourous the shell 
Now a shadow of hollow mass of nonexistence 
Destroyed by disease engulfing all occupants 

The heart once glistening with passion 
Now stagnant in an orb of seclusion 

Drops of blook try to escape giving assurance 
But all activity has ceased..hope is no more
