Poem – “The Shortest Straw of Demise” – Romanticism – 1/7/2021

Sad notes
Echo a choir for the sake
Of defeat,
As winter stains a halo
Above a neck
Where no head resides.

Let me summarize,
Let me fathom
The failure of a living ghost,
A singular gesture
To state the end is crawling near
Upon my hollow neck.

Faces resemble
No curves to this flattened space,
As one void trembles me,

Whimpering to the sadness,
Sending seeds overboard
To wash against your feet.

New beginnings of strange endings,
As all will mock
The outcome where beauty lies
Broken upon the back of time,
Listening to the verses in the stars
Stealing away wishes.
