Closure

Lying curled up against the corpse
Of a once beautiful dream
He tries to gently sob himself to sleep
But tears too have forsaken those barren eyes
There can be no rest for the wicked tonight
No sleep for the depraved
Stumbling through the darkness he searches
For shards of pain to fill the void
Or the kiss of cold steel to put to rest
The treacherous heart that beats against his will.
