Caught in rivalry tossed over,
crashing waves of despair.
A heart in lonely tides, neither here nor there.
Search continues to fill a void, desperate.
Silent pondering only lost to the wind,
waiting in self destruction quantified.
Moments somber, a yearning not defined,
hiding realms of

a void incomplete.

Tears of a heart never happy,
searching always for depths,
somewhat unknown.
Delinquent calm in face of success,
emptiness washing over, all consuming.

A tale left unanswered, the puzzle incomplete,
jailed turmoil waiting to break loose,
eating away as pain mighty

Shock to electric pulses, thoughts conjuring
emptiness beyond measure.

Plans gone all wrong, wrapped,
in subtle beauty of ironies,
catapulting into a blinding madness.
The dregs of life as culmination,
perfectly incomplete, a stance almost suicidal.
