Last Call of Calypso





Last Call of Calypso

 

Loneliness is a phantom which

sucks the marrow from bones

 

of hope. Shadows dance

around the periphery of

 

your eyes, while you pray

for something living to

 

see the pale scars that

embed your heart.

 

Daily motions of

errands straddle you

 

in full submission with

fangs at your throat

 

While in the splintered

back of your mind,

 

You wonder

what the embrace

 

of strangers would

feel like in comparison

  

to the arms of sorrow
