OK ... new poems ... 9 of 10

Yeah, running out of stuff to blither about ... could start bitching but what's the use. I know that the odds of these actually being read are in the slim to none category, so my putting them up for "all to see" is pretty much an exercise in futility, not to mention wated time and energy. Hell ... some days I figure "surfing for smut" would be a better use of my time.

                    UNWALKED ROADS, SEEPING

                    declining forms
                    we are arrayed
                    into this void,
                    twisted down
                    into despair,
                    quite unable
                    to be retrieved
                    the unseen pasts,
                    the unwalked roads,
                    seep into hearts
                    with acid streams
                    and spikes of fire,
                    seeding anguish
                    and profound loss
                    that we can not control
                    strength drains away,
                    we are broken,
                    beaten down by worlds
                    uncaring and cruel,
                    crushed beneath
                    unyielding flows
                    of demand and days
                    bent on our destruction
                    no dreams remain
                    to press the line
                    and form a vector
                    to pierce the veil
                    of shrouded futures,
                    no hope remains
                    to feed belief
                    in anything but doom
                    the darkness clings
                    to every thought,
                    every moment
                    bears unpredicted mass
                    weighing down our time,
                    creating sinkholes
                    on the psychic map
                    that we can not avoid
