The Death of Me

A reclamation declaration
beyond this burial place
dug into the hillside of a life
not lived
perhaps visited like a shrine
erected in monument of
possibilities left ignored
for pursuit
of a memory
only wished upon
and
now embalmed…
entombed
to preserve the shell
of a long hoped for
existence…
a search..
a yearning…
yes-
a dream now dead.

A bump back to the top for this fine piece
