SHALLOW GRAVE

spade-1316561_960_720

It is inside the longing
The emptiness unfilled
Calling out in the dark
It is inside the sorrow
The lonely slow fade
Into nothingness
Wrapping itself tight
Around broken limbs
It is inside the sound
The sacred hushing
Of a lazy light breeze
Smothering you
Stealing breath
Depriving you
It is inside the night
The graves dug
Shallow enough
Yet deep enough
To hide the truth
It is inside the black
Hidden darkness
Casting shadows out
And spilling love
Where you can never
Hope to find it again
