The kiss of tears tracing the tracked curves in cheeks,
the anguish ache in agony’s aftermath is now complete.
Dread distressing clear skies reaffirm the dire in disbelief,
in the belly of the fire, whispering whimper looks for relief.
I’m jaded the tolling taps of time mourning remembrance,
vexing! vulnerable now voided vigil’s vow of perseverance.
Pain’s quiet qualms weary weeping! witnessing wreckage,
those wordless woes sorrow flows this salvaging leakage.
