Snookered

In the 
Loneliest tears
The soul burns
The invaded innocence
Fear created
Forgiveness hardly
Darkness breathes
Untold traumas
Vulnerability cannot comprehend
Rhetoric bent, bruised
Self-righteous life's 
Fatal doze swift.

Crumpled stars offer
Condolenses on inheriting
A broken earth 
Infinitesimal happiness despairs

I try to listen to my thoughts 
Standing in the cacophony.

Death before death.
