Nothing More

Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 74

My soul is falling into the pits of hell
Unexpressed sorrow churned around my pain
And in that sorrow drowned the tolling bell
Darkness silencing the whispering trees
As stillness echoes without nature’s song
In the hour of leaving there is no breeze
No feelings left, I no longer belong
There’s only silence where I once was strong
Cold hard time closing down the moonlight’s swell
As my body lies in the falling rain
And the rippling waves cease to reach the shore
My eyes, deserted by life, at dawn’s reprise
The spirit flown after what came before
Only twisted shadows remain, nothing more
