careless words and those unspoken
break a heart too far downtrodden
shed of loving care and broken
walking lone and sad forgotten


would I were of eggshell made
could scarce be any weaker
so far down have i been laid
that life could be no bleaker


though smallest gleam diffuse
dark night’s unfailing gloom
such light could not produce
such hope to dispel doom


cries in darkest night
fail this pain relieve
even morning bright
offers no reprieve


there is no grace
within this roil
no hope replace
this morbid coil


every breath
urgent plea
living death
void of glee


none care
for me
or dare
to see
