Pile of Bones

17 Nov

by Sarah Martin

The longing filled the room with light
The desire covered the body
The hatred drunk on images
The unease ate at the bed covers
The emptiness that was discovered
The sadness engulfed by the dust that settled
The happiness faded in the shadows
The love sat beside the broken winged bird
The hope fell upon the reflection
The silence fell between the cracks in the floor
The memories discovered in hidden pages
The tears fill empty spaces
The despise festering in shadows
The imagination in opened boxes
The dreams caught dangling in the air
The soul
