Capture

062c47dae71bfd585412bba88c97ce4a

Desert filling the house and snakes crawling underneath a door
Ravens, owls mourning on the edge of silence
Rain burying the end in a corner of a cloud
Time as a Sisif chasing a beginning that would never come
Walls transpiring with thoughts, exhausted of thinking too much
The floor crumbling, feeling like the ultimate heights
A smell of old, of stiff creations of the mind painting the covers in rust
Everything sitting still as the breath before a lie, as the heart when getting caught
The air being humble as a sunflower without light, hiding as a scorpion seeking camouflage
And a garden that grew rocks and a pit of bones
Coyotes and their howls instead of fences and flowers
A sky surrendered in the night, witnessing the lack of life from a non-beating heart.
