Soul of Bone

Postby nightlock » Fri Aug 31, 2012 6:18 am

Ever walking
Always going, no end in sight
Pains ignored, weather defied
Hidden Scars

Ever walking
Endless roads, and smoke-filled bars
Weeping winds, and endless stars
Akrasia Begun

Ever walking
No reasons, never done
Empty eyes, an automaton
Void Sown

Ever walking
Drained and empty, soul of bone
Always silent, thoughts unknown
Dead Inside


Read New Awakenings

The poem conveys the hopelessness- not even despair- but lack of hope, of the walker. The emptiness, the lack of spark. Well done.
